A large restaurant with a big turnover. Very Italian and the food was very good and basic and good sized portions. Good basic choice, but a dictionary or good Italian a must. Very friendly staff. Watch where you park, nothing to do with restaurant , but had a parking ticket after 9pm.

Had the worse dinner ever. Had to wait 3 hours before eating something, our order was lost, then they run out of food. Management very rude and unprofessional. Never again. What was meant to be a nice evening turned to be a nightmare.

We've been here because it was recommended in our guide. We had fish, prawns, pizza, and french fries. The fries were surgelate, the pizza was just average, as well as the fish and the prawns. The grilled vegetables that we had ordered with the fish were just a bad joke, tasteless, cold and dried out

We had a nice lunch here in the airy barn-like dining room opposite the Tonnery. There are some nice old photos while you loiter in the reception area. Food was good, service attentive and friendly. Not expensive. We would go again.

Had an early dinner and decided to sit inside as it was a bit warm outside. The bread was so good we ordered more, warm with herbs and salt and very tasty. Pasta was good and service ok.

We went on a Sunday, it was the second time that we went there. The first time was ok, but when we went in Feb, it was horrible. It was packed with people. However, he still told to sit and that it was not a problem. We were not allowed to have a menu. The waiters could not understand English.... More

Good food at very reasonable prices. From the pasta to the fish you won't go wrong. Great view of the sea from the front door but unfortunately no outdoor seating. For the price, worth it.

My host recommended this place during my stay in Ortiga. It is located at the beautiful white sand beach. I stopped for lunch . The antipasto buffet had lots of variety but I questioned the freshness of produce and elected to go for supa de pesce(not in the menu, just ask for it). The soup was thick tomato based stock...
