Wonderfull seaview on the terrace of this busy restaurant. Pastas were very good. But the staff was not really friendly and it's overpriced as everywhere on the island!

Order the stuffed squid and fresh homemade pasta with clams and tomatoes. You won't be disappointed. The waiters and owners are gorgeous. The whole experience was incredible. Remember to book because they're always busy!!!

We went back to this restaurant a second time because we all wanted to have more of the best food we have ever eaten. The service is excellent and the food is spectacular! We will all remember their stuffed squid as the best we have ever had.
