Fully recommended for either lunch or dinner. They do sushi most days which is fresh and made on-site. They specialise in Mozambique prawns and fresh line fish.

Marvelous place and enjoyed a good Sunday afternoon lunch. The atmosphere was warm and homely let alone the quality service by the staff. The place to be.

I visited in mid-winter and was very pleasantly surprised how cosy they had made the setting. I is a lovely outdoor setting in summer, but the inside fire and the heaters on the verandah worked well. The food was tasty. The paella was particularly good....More
