This is a wonderful Restaurant with very friendly staff. We were served excellent, very good fresh basic Mediterranean food. My daughter has an allergy and they went out of their way to make sure she could eat what she wanted. I really do not understand the bad reviews they got from other users, our whole family liked this restaurant best... More

We went for lunch, long big restaurant list, without changes in years... Letters sticked on the inside of the pages. Poor appetizer, below average fritto misto and grigliata with poisoning swordfish. We ordered 2 coffe, never came but were in the bill. Disrespectful. Never again

We went to the place because it looked nice and cozy from the outside and it had a lot of sea food and fish on the menu. We were disappointed from the whole experience. We had a sea food salad as a starter. The sea food was not fresh, it was pickled. Exactly like you can buy in a supermarket.... More

The only motivation to go to dine to this restaurant was the fact that they serve Pilsner Beer, which is adored by my fiends. Drafted Pilsner was refreshing as we expected. But the rest - food (obviously "low cost cooking"), stuff (not really friendly), the environment (forgotten in 80's) can't be recommended.

Fine restaurant with well prepared food. We had two starters and fish for the main course. The fish tasted good and was perfectly cooked. Service was fast and polite, but not that welcoming.

Avoiding the pizzerias at the beach.... Very enjoyable local produce - antipasti, fried fish - variety of octopii, sardines, anchovies - and wine. Shady position in the centre of the village and close to the beautiful beach.

We didn't know anything about the restaurant before going there, liked the look of the terrace and the menu. The staff were friendly, helpful and didn't rush us at all. The meal we had was entirely based on seafood, which was all very fresh, plentiful and superbly cooked. As starters I had mussels and my companion had grilled prawns, while... More

Went there late in the evening, but it was still open, which is good. Very good location, nice design, looks like a typical Italian restaurant. Nice service, but the lobster dish that we wanted was not available, and unfortunately staff couldn't suggest any interesting alternatives, so ended up with a seafood rissotto, which was ok, but served too hot. Tasty... More

This was are really good meal, the menu had very clear indications about possible allergens present, and I was able to choose a delicious gluten free salt cod main. My partner had a delicious Seafood risotto. Very reasonably priced would happily eat there again. We also shared 2 anti pasta starters. Good tasty house red also at reasonable cost.

We went following a recommendation from fellow guests at our hotel and wished we hadn't. The service was very slow and the food poor, with fairly average prices. My husband's pasta was particularly stodgy. When our starter plates were cleared the staff threw the used knives back on the tablecloth rather than providing clean ones. It seemed to sum up... More
