Sadly only stayed one night and as it was a Sunday, out of season, the restaurant was closed.
Pleasantly surprised that Johnny took the initiative to ring ahead and confirm our arrival time. He gave us a warm welcome and checked that we were happy with the room and had all we required before leaving us to relax after a long journey. The room was spacious, clean, very comfortable and the view with the sound of the waves lapping on the shore soon got us in a holiday mood. After the best night's sleep and a great shower, we sampled Johnny's excellent breakfast, the best we had anywhere throughout our trip. He was friendly, attentive without being obtrusive and happy to chat to us. We are only sorry that we didn't sample the seafood and some of the Bistro atmosphere. As we told him at the time, we would love to return.
