Had dinner there with friends last night and had the best garlic prawns, needed extra bread to wipe out oil and garlic in the bottom of the clay pot. Yummy.
Ate in the outside courtyard, ambience good, but was too hot and humid, needs some fans outside.

We dined here for my birthday and whilst the food was great, the service was poor. Felt a little overlooked. Didn’t receive a cool bucket for our prosecco, or a hot bowl for our fingers with our prawns, yet the table next to us received both. Quite slow in general in clearing plates etc, not much help with the menu. We asked if our flounder was already cooking as we were pretty full and was told immediately “yes” even though this was not checked with the kitchen. 30 minutes later, the fish arrived. It doesn’t take 30 mins to cook fish, so why be dishonest? Anyway, food was great but the service did ruin it slightly.

Found this place on trip advisor and turned up on a week night not knowing what to expect. What we going was a lovely rustic outdoor patio (indoor tables also available) with a menu full of delicious seafood.

We had the prawns to start (one each - they were huge) and then the crab to share, with some bread. Absolutely delicious! You must have the bread to soak up the delicious sauce/juice. Divine!

I will definitely go back.

NB: they have a sparkling red wine - very unusual - if you are into that !

The food and service were excellent but when you go to wash your hands, much needed after crab, you are in the 3rd world.
We would never go again. We have a rule if the loos are below standard then so must be the kitchen ....ugh!

Had a serving of prawns and they were fantastic. Especially the bread soaking in the garlic and sauce afterwards. Shared a Gold Band Snapper as a main this came with rice and bok choy. And this was absolutely amazing. Cooked to perfection and just fell off the bone. All washed down with Budvar an easy to drink czech beer. With great helpful service, and reasonably priced also.
