Best beachfront restaurant in the resort; lovely views and friendly service.

I took my father here straight from the airport and it was a wonderful 'landing' meal. We sat chatting for several hours over our fish and seafood lunch with the cool blue sea as the perfect backdrop.

Food and drink

We went for two of the daily specials: fresh sardines and prawn risotto and a salad with goats' cheese. The sardines – fresh, unadulterated; just as they should be – were presented in suitable rustic style. The risotto was wonderfully cheesy and creamy, although it was a bit nouvelle cuisine style for the casual setting, and the salad rather average. The large menu features a pretty standard selection (for traditional restaurants on the island) of meat, fish and salads, but the restaurant also bills itself as a pizzeria, and the pizzas, I hear, are very good. 

Recommended dishes

I don't think you can go wrong with one of the daily specials – that's if you like fish. Otherwise the pizza is a good fall back, particularly for kids.

Ambience

The beachfront location and terrace overlooking the water is the main draw here, even more than the food, which is good rather than spectacular.

Service

Our lovely waitress couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. She recommended a local dry white, which fitted the bill perfectly.

Location

It's on the edge of a shopping centre, in the centre of the resort, next to the seafront promenade.

Price advice

Prices are pretty average – between 10 and 15 euros for a main course. 

Tables to book

The inside seating area is a bit gloomy. This restaurant is one of the more popular mid options in the resort, so it you want a table on the terrace, it is advisable to book in the peak summer months.
