so well situated, in a charming place well decorated, very good food, well elaborated and presented. More expensive that the others in the areas, but the all lot deserves it clearly. This restaurant deserves surely a visit and you can taka advantage of the seatings on the beach, relaxing, discussing, drinking some local wine or classical cocktails.

We were looking forward to experiencing something truly exceptional when we visited this establishment on our holiday recently but unfortunately we were far from impressed. Firstly on arrival we were unable to get a table as the manageress told us that all the tables were booked although there was only one table occupied at the time but after we persisted she told us she could accommodate us at one of the tables but that we would need to leave within an hour so we asked if we could book for that evening but the manageress told us they had a large party that evening, so we settled for lunch the following day. I would point out that we visited this area in low season when there were very few tourists and the other restauarants we visited in the area bent over backwards to accommodate us and make us feel welcome so the manageress' attitude was highly unfriendly and not what one would expect from such a highly rated establishment. When we did eventually get a chance to sample the fayre we started by sharing their crayfish salad which was exceptional, it was fresh, delicately balanced with some fabulous flavours. Next my wife had their fresh fish dish which was disappointing as the fish was over cooked and I had the crab dish which was good but well over priced. Finally to finish my wife ordered a cappuccino coffee which we sent back as she could not drink it but the manageress insisted she had another one which tasted as bad as the first attempt, so overall our expectations were not met and so unfortunately we will not be rushing back.

It's far to the left on barra beach. They have really nice furniture at the beach side to sit and lying on. The cappuccino is really good! But we tried nothing else because it's very expensive. The waitress was very nice and it is a really good place for a day at barra beach. There are less people than in tofo beach so it's nice to have a day off there. Go by car or rent a squad or a taxi.

The food here was fantastic! The fish was done to perfection, the accompanying sauce created a superb flavour combination, and the fries were delicious. I do feel that this restaurant is rather expensive for the portions provided. However, I understand that it probably caters to a different market. The staff were lovely and overall we had a great time here.
