Reserved a table in this restaurant using The Fork. Service is rather slow. Took more than half hour to give us the menu. The scallop is amazingly fresh and melts in your mouth. The grill octopus is superb.

Such a nice and cosy place. The food was excellent and our kids on 17, 15 and 11 all enjoyed their meal. The service was impeccable - and also we got 30% discount for booking online. Nothing at all to complain about!
