This place has a great ocean view and friendly staff. Other restaurants on the island charge about € 20,- for a fish of the day, here they are with € 16 a bit cheaper but the offer the same quality. Definitely worth a visit.

Efficient friendly service. We were a party of 4 and wanted tapas which was not on the menu.However easily rectified by turning starters into sharing dishes. Every single element was perfection, service great and such value for money.

Usually when restaurants offer a "big fish to share", we're skeptical. Especially after getting burned a number of times. But this time we agreed and were SO glad we did. The fish was incredible, the portions huge and the price ridiculous. Overall both the food...More
