The view is wonderful from the balcony, we can enjoy a good and fresh meal looking to the beach. The fish is fresh and very good prepared.

Average is a little unfair as the setting of this restaurant is sublime. seven of us went for dinner, had a table right over the beach and a very good waiter looking after us. We started with a selection of prawns in garlic and clams. Both excellent. Four of our party had a 2 kilo stone bass, grilled. At a... More

We dined here on our first and last nights of our family stay. It has to be said that this restaurant needs an injection of inspiration and to make changes, however the service was decent, the seafood was good and they were quite traditional which was appealing.

The only good thing about this Restaurant is its location - everything else goes downhill after that. We should have believed the other negative reports posted on Tripadvisor. Covers arrived which consisted of stale bread toasted and buttered with garlic butter plus a bowl of olives - we asked where the cocktail sauce was plus the carrots (both of which... More

Oh dear had we read these reviews we wouldn't have considered eating here. Pleasant enough old boy who was waiting on us but as it was an early dinner, everything seemed to take a long time to come and when it did it was either wrong or overcooked. Starters were possibly the least considered combination of ingredients I've come across... More
