This restaurant on the steps is quite an amazing place. One waiter serves the entire restaurant and I might add does an outstanding job. The menu is varied and all food freshly prepared. The lamb lettuce salad is probably the best salad I have ever eaten. The chef even took the time on visit number 3 to tell me about... More

In spite of the stairs it is worth a visit. Coming to the restaurant from the top of the hill is easy. But its bit of a climb if your walking up from the Beach end of the hill. How ever, there is a lift you can take to get to the top. In its self is well worth a... More

We went here for a change to eating in the hotel and to celebrate our Anniversary, the restaurante is perched on the steps going up from the beach to the Town, I would say not for the faint hearted walking wise as it is up a lot of very busy steps but well worth the effort, The place is only...

Lovely food, friendly, helpful and attentive service. We have been going here for years and recommend this fabulous restaurant. What a great find! The menu is all cooked freshly to order but still very varied and the prices are great for such high quality food. We are looking forward to next year's visit already!

We visited this restaurant during our stay. The selection of food available was good however the service was very slow due to lack of staff. But it had an intimate atmosphere and generally the evening went well. Don't expect to be hurried here.

Very good place. Service was swift but not noisy. Food was good although the menu was limited. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the visit and would recommend the place. Their deserts are good too, looked so tempting that we forgot to take a photo. Wine list was good and choice was "bianco and tinto" wines satisfied our modest requirements. Reservations over the...
