Great place to go for a meal, while on holidays nearby. Great location and with lovely views. Our meals were presented well and we both enjoyed our choices, of Seafood Paella and Lamb Shanks. Thanks to the attentive staff and congratulations to the chef.

Been here a few times before but disappointed in the food this time. I had steak and vegetables but the veggies weren't that warm, in fact some were cold. The steak was ok but nothing special. A good place for families with children as they...More
