Excellent food, very good service, nice location at the see. The only minus comes from the loud music from the neighbour restaurant.

Friendly and efficient service. Quality and presentation very consistent over the years. Julio always interacts with his customers. We had the fresh Cape Salmon which was excellent. There is a variety of desserts. We tried 2! Outstanding! Definitely worth a visit.
