We were told by our friends to try Lucky Tuna for the live band. The boys playing were amazing and the staff were very friendly and fun! We had the prawns which were delicious!

Got food poisoning from eating one of their "fresh" tunas from the bbq (had been eating plain food the rest of the day, so 99% sure this must be it). Sick for 2 days now. Thanks for ruining the ending of a nice vacation.

The best restaurant. Delicious food, well and fast cooked. Not expensive. I recommend it for romantic dinner sitting near ocean. Thank you Lucky Tuna for 2 nice evenings, greetings from Russia.

If you want to have a nice view and chill by ocean, this is the right place. Service is good and fast, but food and drinks are just regular.

Hi Kieran, Um I'm not too sure about serving the beer and wine but they'll definitely be open because they're beach restaurants. But hope you managed to find out! Sorry I can't be of any more help.
