We were staying in the Riu hotel along the coast but wanted to get out and see a little bit more of the island. For anyone in a similar position would heartily recommend a meal at the Odjo d'Agua. We went twice.. both times my wife said the prawns were among the best she'd ever had.. and my food (brazilian style steak one night, fresh fried fish another) was also really good.
The main appeal though was the location and the friendliness of the staff. We sat overlooking the sea and for me the highlight was actually when the power failed for a few minutes.. all the lights off meant an even better view of the moon reflecting on the sea and a beautiful starry sky. Our waitress came over with a grin and a torch pretty much straightaway - am guessing it's a fairly frequent occurence and it's nice to be somewhere with a bit of character!
