The restaurant was recommended by our hotel as being very traditional and indeed it was. Very high quality service with a smile. Great food and everything was prepared freshly so not the fastest. The decor is very basic but the tables are large with space...More

Our hotel recommended this quite small family run restaurant saying the name was quite misleading, which is quite true. Here you get good traditional italian cooking - both fish and meat dishes. There a lot of regular guests here, I think perhaps we were the...More

Just finished a delightful meal of fresh fish and vegetables. I think it was the healthiest meal I have had since I have been in Italy! As well, it offered a warm and friendly ambience....it seems like a place locals enjoy. Would highly recommend it...More

I hardly ever order steak. I'm so insufferable that I reckon no one can cook it better than I can. And it's usually hideously overpriced. Anyway, great wine but then everywhere round here does. Had a mixed seafood starter. It was banging. Non chewy squid...More

Hotel Astoria recommended The Elite. It's a 5-10 minute stroll along the promenade and then just a stride or two towards the town. Good food choice and wine list with a rustic theme. We thought quite a few locals would use this place. Excellent service...More

We had eated here before and went back because we remembered the friendly and warm greeting we were give. This still applies and the food is wholesome and well cooked.

Very nice staff, dog friendly. Food was good, even though fish was frozen (I guess it's normal for November, though) but well-cooked. Nothing bad to say, really. Prices a sliggtly higher than we expected (11-14 euro for pasta or ravioli and 14-18 for main course)
