We were ordering the fish plate for two and imidiently noticed a bad smell which was coming from the shrimps. Other ingredients were good but nothing special. So maybe I would recommend to order some fish that is on the daily menu.

Very nice food and a stunning view on Benijo beach. I would particularly recommend the baked squid; very tastefull and excellent alternative for the overload of calamari offered elsewhere.
