Great seafood by the sea

I really enjoying eating outside on holiday (I live in Scotland!), and this was just what I was looking for – sitting outside on a sunny day with a sea view eating fresh, local food. Most of the tables are situated outside the building (under an awning) and there's a great view across the... read more

While walking along the seaside with some friends, we came across this nice quaint restaurant that stroke us. We asked for a menu,as neither dishes nor prices were displayed outside. We were simply not let in by an impolite waiter who replied: "it's out of your range". I've rarely been treated so rudely in a restaurant context and seldom found... More

We went to this restaurant after asking a couple of locals for recommendations. It was definitely a good choice. Fish was almost alive and cooked to perfection.

The restaurant is nice with pleasant hospitality. The food is quiet good. Nevertheless it does not worth the high prices that they charge you.

Out hunting for lunch, we stumbled across what we first thought to be a typical tourist restaurant. It turned out far from it. Delicious food, amazing staff and a nice view. There's not much to add to what already been said in previous reviews; this is a truly great restaurant and you really wouldn't want to miss it.

We hunt for restaurants that are busy with local trade What a treat. Welcomed by the owner who spoke good English. We shared a bowl of mussels in a wonderful garlic/wine broth and a plate... More

If you like fresh fish, you've found the right place. Take the starters: ten various dishes for every taste, hot, cold, crude, everyting really very tasty. I had also their speciality: the spaghetti dell'osteria with swordfish, aubergine and salted ricotta. Very good!
