Taking into consideration where it is then this is an extremely good restaurant in relative terms. Clean fresh interior although a little sterile. Nice terrace if the weather is good, attentive and professional waiters and a good wide menu of quality choices. Their fresh fish in particular is very good as is the tartar. Highly recommended if you are nearby.

Medium level environment, 80s style maybe a little bit out of fashion. Personnel very serviceful, food is good. Suggested the raw fish (tartare, shrimps, scampi) as appetizer. Good choice, but not cheap-

Remo, the owner/chef, really knows... More

One of the first things I think about when I choose a restaurant is location, therefore a place close to a big shopping centre didn't say much. However we tried it based on 'word of mouth' and have been back 3 other times. 1. It is well removed from the shopping centre which at dinner time (when we visited) was... More
