The seafood linguine was great. Great atmosphere, and couldn't fault the service. I usually love Sotano. I am vegetarian and usually have some tapas, like the halloumi bruschetta, and the Greek salad is amazing. But yesterday I decied to try a new item called vegetable...More

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.
