The group settled for pizza, risotto and grilled fish - overall everybody commented that the food is tasty and most inportantly made from fresh ingrediants. Prices were really good on the pizzas! Definitely a recommended no-nonsense destination for the hungry.

If you love your seafood,my you will love this restaurant with a wide choice of fish dishes along with excellent pasta dishes. The pizza is to die for and is very popular with locals and the few tourists with a busy takeaway service. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Excellent value too!

Good restaurant with a typical menu, very friendly staff once we got over the fact that I wasn't french, as I speak Italian with a French accent. Very clean . Very affordable. Restaurant was full and they were doing a roaring trade in take away. Seems to say it all really.
