This is a lovely small restaurant. The family and their staff are busy but attentive. Excellent food. Mostly fish but a reasonable selection of meat too. Save space for pudding. The "dessert selection for 2 " is enormous!

Great fresh fish on the BBQ. Fried garlic prawns are a delicious starter. We ate here twice during our 10 night stay nearby and would really recommend. Be sure to book to avoid disappointment.
