Amazing views and fab food - whats not to like! Make sure you don't turn up too hungry as there can be quite a queue - which speaks for itself!

A local hangout back in the day is still a favourite. Delicious food with calamari always cooked to perfection. Beautiful sundowner spot to end a day off.

We really enjoyed our night here. The food was really nice. Very big portions. The drinks were good and the service was very efficient, friendly and good. It's a great spot for sunset and evening dining.

We had such a nice meal here. The restaurant was packed at 6pm! It was full of locals and holiday makers. My husband's Tuna steak was delicious. I had the lamb cutlets. They were so tasty and tender. The menu was varied. Good service and good food.....I can highly recommend this place!

We had lunch here and decide to go back in the evening for dinner. They don't take bookings but said to get there early to see the sun go down and to get a good table.

On our first day we had lunch - Hake and chips a huge portion scrummy!- in fact all portions are big here but the quality is not compromised. Had the Tuna Steak next day, perfectly cooked.... More

Service is effective and neutral. We had the prawns and the tuna, both among the best of its kind we have ever had! Way above expectations! A must if... More

Worth the journey to get to it. Service was of a high standard and the food was just what we wanted. The views are worth it as well.
