I visited this restaurant with my Dad and we really enjoyed it. It is right by the sea with excellent views and they had a wee see through canopy and patio heaters so you got the benefit of the sea view but also kept warm. We had bread, olives and pate to start (the seafood pate was excellent) and then... More

Was told to go there from the hotel reception and the taxi drivers as well - which we later realised they were obviously working together. Fresh fish they said - asked upon arrival again fresh the server said. After having fresh fish the day before the frozen sea bass which they served us left me hungry, angry and 70 euro... More

Good service with good food although you need to be selective in what you pick of the large menu. Excellent service which cannot be faulted. Decent wines but in winter quite chilly in the back of the restaurant.

It was cold dark and rainy day, gale force winds blowing the sea into a frenzy. We walked in our ponchos through the streets when we were ushered in by a friendly inviting face from Cabana Fresca.... We sat by under the gazebos which were heated inside, it was so comfy. We ordered the tomato soup with cheesy garlic bread,... More

We were wandering around and stopped in for a quick beer/wine stop. Magnificent views! Happy hour from 12 to 5, so we had two! Also had a ham and cheese baguette which was delicious and very fresh. We will be back!

We visited Cabana Fresca twice on our 10 day holiday as it was so delicious. Our other and probably our big reason to be drawn here was for the really friendly staff. Artam was so lovely to our two little girls making them laugh and pandering to their needs! On one of the days we visited the girls shoes were... More
