What a lovely completely gluten free restaurant with a fab view...and the best thing? The Chinese food is the best we've had. A lovely couple run it, speak little English but persevere. Food delicious! Lovely place.

Great restaurant where you can hear the waves gently lapping at your feet whilst feasting on some lovely food, particuarly liked the seafood pasta which was superb, and the starter of 5 different ravioli a triumph, perfect portions and great value for money.
