I had the spaghetti and king prawns starter with the baked turbot and risotto main course.My partner had mussels as a starter and the sea trout... More

We had dinner with friends at Lupa before a cruise. Great food, good wine list, good service, all at reasonable prices. Located within the old city, it's a scenic and easy walk from nearby hotels.

Hi Thank you for taking the time to review my restaurant. I am sorry the food was not to your liking. You stated you had dined with us on a number of occasions - we never serve food on warm/hot plates so this should not have been a surprise to you. However, we did offer to cook the dish afresh...

Gorgeous food, generous portions, a great find from a Google search. Nice atmosphere, lovely interior and suitable for any occasion. The staff made us feel welcome and were very attentive without feeling intrusive. Only negative is we were seated by the gents toilets.
