Food and drink
The menu is mainly Mediterranean, with some Asian dishes thrown in, and a kids' menu too. Warsteiner is on tap, and there is a respectable wine list.
The seafood is always good, and I am especially fond of the lamb chops.
The clock stops when you get here. It's rather as if you have dropped in on friends of friends for a meal - the reception is courteous, relaxed and you are left to get on with the business of enjoying the food and drink.
It's low-key - you won't be bothered but should you need anything the staff come whistling over.
China Beach occupies the upper floor of a two-storey building set into the hillside at the end of the beach, up a steep flight of steps.
It's cash only. If you happen to have run out, the staff quite understand while you pop off to the ATM.
