I feel bad I had to describe this as a restaurant in the title. I'd prefer to describe as a "Carbuncle on the backside of humanity". Its a shame that this is in such a nice setting. The overzealous over-aggressive touting of the waiters was,...More

Lovely setting on the harbour. All fish freshly caught and booked to order. A bit confusing as priced per kilo as it depends on what size fish you want. Can work out a bit pricy so be careful. Friendly service.

I would not normally post a review for simply having a coffee but felt that I should mention my thoughts. Firstly the coffee was expensive by local standards even in the port area at euros 3.50 and no water was given as is usual practice...More

I have to say the terrible reviews are a bit unjustified. However we did succumb to the hard sell of the guy who persuaded us to take a seat. He referred to some out of date DK guide rather than Tripadvisor as his endorsement, though...More

Do not fall for the rubbish about charging for fish by the kilo. This means the menu prices are meaningless and they can make the bill up. EUR 145 for two is robbery. Walk away. There are plenty of excellent restaurants nearby. Brings shame on...More
