I can't believe the way the male waiters behaved. We bought ice cream and there was a thunder storm. They were extremely inpatient and wanted us to go out into the pouring rain. We had visited this restaurant last year but we had forgotten about the bad service. We will never go back here.

This became our regular eating place during our weeks stay in Sant'andrea. We like laid back beach bars and although it is not fine dining, the food is very good, the staff extremely friendly and welcoming and you are sitting with a fabulous front line sea view!

This is ok for something quick for lunch if you're on the beach or a drink. The prices are elevated because of the location. Staff are a mixed bag! The views are nice - don't try and sit at the front if you've only come for a drink!

We found this centrally located seaside restaurant to serve the freshest seafood salad. Maybe it's just that this area is so fantastic that everything tastes great. The service was very friendly and quite fast. And you just can't beat the fact that delicious fresh food can be found literally on the beach . Love it!

Thank fultonriverandrew
