The food is ok and the quality is satisfactory. Fish could be cooked in more different ways. The personnel is very nice and helpful. Wine is below the average of other restaurants like the Tides or the Cliff (those, however, are by far more expensive)....More

Agreed, about 20 minutes in a taxi. Super restaurant in a brilliant location. Make sure you book in advance and request a terrace table.

We always recommend making a reservation but we also welcome walk-ins. We might not always be able to offer tables, especially sea side tables, to walk-ins but we usually have some space at the bar for small parties.
