Hi ALESSANDRO. One of the great plus points for tripadvisor is the amount of research one can do before going on holiday but clearly you did not do yours properly or you would not have dined with us. I cannot comment on the food as...More

We enjoyed our food at Mareena's. The dishes were well prepared with fresh ingredients. The lentils and fish were wonderful. Only negative i had was the music. It was the type of music that could put you to sleep and didnt go with the decor.
