Took a couple of British friends yesterday and we were very satisfied of the service and food! €45/pp but included starters, fresh fish, dessert & a couple of bottles of wine.

This restaurant was warmly recommended by TripAdvisor, also we went there in full confidence. Dishes were excellent, but the quantity in each plate was ridiculously poor. Side dish were also poor and the quality was not at the restaurant reputation level. My daughter was satisfied with the tagliatelle and lobster, but my wife and I were really disappointed with the...

Fine dining, with excellent food and exceptional service. A place to go if you want a real treat. Not cheap, but worth it!

They were fully booked but managed to mind a table. Main course was Pagru (Red Sea Bream) a large fish simply grilled with salt and olive oil. Euro 28. I have had better fish and... More

I have been twice in this restaurant. And I am very much impressed. The menu is rather small, but they have every day fresh fish which is really worth it to choose. The wine list is extensive, and you find for sure something for your taste. The service, WOW. The best on the island, the team is quick, attentive, and... More

Excellent food, very good prices, friendly service, nice atmosphere. We ate pasta with lobster and fettucine seafood and prawn carpaccio. For dessert we ate pannacotta and ice cream halva. Very good prices too! Just perfect!

Thank Maria-Christos
