Four of us ate here, the food and service were excellent and the prices very reasonable, ( due to the exchange rate at the time )

A little bit out of the way on the Kalamar road, but worth the effort. Great decor and service, but no view of the bay! Superbly cooked food and a varied menu but the wine a little expensive. Seafood medley and steaks are excellent, good...More
