Tuna and meat here are served on the hot stones. And you make it ready for yourself by cutting slices and putting them on the stone. A very friendly staff as well. And they speak English.

Ate here three times, first reason for visiting was because it was busy and they did not try to 'hijack' you on the street - had excellent Pizzas and pasta, the guys serving were great and we got excellent service - excellent value for money.

Tourist slop of overcooked wet pasta, cook your own bad quality meat (saves having a decent chef) and inattentive service....pretty awful but a nice location.

A delightful setting with ample outside seating. Very attentive and cheerful staff. Service very good and helpful. The pasta dishes were amongst the best we have tasted on the island. All in all, a great evening at a modest cost.
