Tried Menu of the Day and reasonable value. Limited choices on day I attended (there were eight adults in our group and we all ordered the same dish) was meal was ok. Meanie is available in three different languages which is welcome.

Travelling as two couples we dined here two evenings. The welcome from Rosa was warm. Both occasions we ate from the 25 euro menu which included wine. The choices were plentiful and well presented.

We visited here in March, i.e. out of season. The restaurant was almost full, but we were the only tourists: this tells you something about the way the place is rated by locals.

This restaurant serves a wide variety of dishes, which includes many local specialities. The quality and freshness of the food is excellent - this is typified by the 'house salad' which, although a starter, is like a meal in itself and far from the average salad one would expect. The service is friendly and relaxed. Children are also catered for... More
