Went there as we stayed at the place owned by the same guy. Food was on a 'oh so delicious' side, but we waited for it for ages. We called the guy up giving a headsup to reserve us a table closer to the sea, by the time we arrived didn't sea a sign of reservation lol May be coz we made a pretty big order for 2 people, or may be thanks to my asian deceptive loveliness lol they let us open a bottle of wine we brought with us. At some point I thought I was gonna faint from hunger waiting for the food, but the wait was worth it. We ordered 2 types of crabs: steamed and fried ones, mimoza eggs and scallops with their nom nom!!! In the hindsight we could've gone without mimozas but crabs were 'oh so delicious', so was their scallops!!! Pricey, but why not once, eh? ;)
