We definitely had our fill of food for the price at this restaurant. Our waiter was excellent and super friendly. Ask to sit by a window so you can see all the hustle and bustle below. Definitely family friendly.

In a tourist town, finding a reasonably priced meal can be hard: we ate here and had pasta, salad, well prepared and tasty, good service. Would recommend for decent meal, not fancy but worth the wait and price.
