Great place with amazing food, great service and a very yummy dessert. Bit outside the town centre, within walking distance from the beach. Try the Trio of chocolate, but if you do, save space for it on the mains...

The food was delicious and very well presented, and more importantly for us: decent sizes! Prompt service by very friendly staff. Hardly any waiting time, comfortable surroundings. The dessert (lemon meringue curd) was the best dessert we have tasted during our holiday of 2 weeks:-)
