Excellent attentive service, lovely harbour view and excellent fresh sea food. This resto is always a safe bet and seems to be popular as always busy.

Good choice of dishes from the 23.50 euro menu. The seafood platter starter was good value as was the fish kebab. The final touch a chocolate ,banana and cream dessert.
