Why we´ve eaten so often at "Oniro - by the sea"

Suite 48 enjoys a unique and wonderful location. In particular, we think, as the day draws to an end and the sun starts sinking in the Mediterranean right in front of your eyes. It is good for the soul to relax here, sitting on the lawn outside looking at the sea and the sunset and ruminate on what the day has brought you. – A cool beer or, perchance, a Mojito, will contr... read more
