    Wonderful for family or group of friends
    Harmony is such a stunning restaurant, placed up on a cliff overlooking the beach, sunsets here are just beautiful. They have an excellent selection of Mexican cuisine, the fajitas being a personal favourite! And the best sangria on the island! The food is fantastic and priced fairly but its the atmosphere that really makes you want to come back every night. With live music and a chilled vibe you will never want to leave the place!
