We visited the restaurant with a family of three kids (16,13,10) and two adults. The table we got was ok, but after adding a chair to fit us all, the staff forgot to add both napkin and fork, but they managed to add one knife. The five pizzas we had was quite good and worth the price of approx. 8... More

Visited with my family, ordered grilled sea bass, with tomato's and potatoes, as suggested by waiter. When it arrived no vegetables, waiter (different) said that was standard, and walked off.

This was an amazing dining experience ! Super delicious food and outstanding service. The manager of this family run restaurant was exceeding all expect ions. He had a chat with us and we were offered complimentary "Montenegro's" after our dinner.

This restaurant serves really great pizza and pasta (also take away). I did not try other dishes, but definitely I would pick this one to have a pizza (compared to other Palau restaurants). I am not giving "excellent" grade, because the waiter "charged" the tip by himself and returned less money than he should have (unfortunately, I had to leave... More

High quality food! Been there twice and we really enjoyed it. The only problem was that there wasn't much space between tables. You must try the focaccia all formaggio!

Even though I had a specific request on my pizza, which was noted by the waiter, in the end the chef forgot. And the pizza was regular, not real mozzarella di bufala as they sold it. The fried calamari on the other hand were excellent. Good selection of wines.

Haven't got a bad word to say about this restaurant. It was reasonably priced and service was friendly. Food tasted good. Nothing special to blow you away but filled an empty belly.

Good restaurant overlooking the port in Palau. We had various pizzas and pastas, all fine if not great. Go for the terrace experience.

We had dinner and the reason why we choose this particular restaurant was because a lot of local people suggested the taverna to us. The food was good with good portions, the location great. A good taverna in a great location and reasonable prices. If i had the chance I would visit the restaurant again.
