This restaurant is just delightful. It’s on the beachfront, they are dog friendly, weather friendly, and have a superb team of waiters with an easy menu.

The tapa's meal options are great. Their cocktails are delicious and their coffee milkshakes are a must. They are dog friendly too.

Delicious food, and beautifully presented. Its a bit pricey but definitely worth it. A nice atmosphere and great to go during the day or in the evening.
