First thing to know, the restaurant is divided in to areas. A large one in a sun lounge, it is the one filled with families and noise. The other area is smaller but cosier, I recommend that one if you're a couple, but of course,...More

The lady in charge was very very very rude. We had to wait 45 minutes before we got the menu, another 15 minutes for our drinks. After we got our food, me and my friend decided to have another drink. After 25 minutes we still...More

Pizzas are tasty. But that's all! Horrible service, very slow! No attention to the customers. Absolute lack of management! Chaotic taking of orders by different waiters, no follow up! The chabby waitress with black hair ( so called floor manager) absolutely the MOST horrible person...More
