Attractive restaurant right on the sand. Superb selection of seafood to choose from at a reasonable price and the prawn curry plus accompanying veggie ones excellent.

If you like dining with your toes in the sand, this is ideal. We had dinner there twice, because we loved their fresh fish market-on-the-beach option. Lobster one night and Tuna another; both excellent and very reasonably priced.

Fantastic beach location. Seafood is amazing. Select your fish/prawns etc, all charged by weight, and sent to the kitchen to be cooked. Friendly service, great atmosphere, always seems to be busy.

The service was quick and friendly and the ambience is also nice. I ordered calamari which came with some salad and fries. It was a bit oily so I couldn't finish it all. I found the menu to be limited.
