The portion sizes are... More

The food was outstanding and cheap in comparison to other restaurants of a much lower quality. It was so good we returned for our 2nd night and were just... More

The food was impeccable, fresh ingredients cooked with a deft hand. There are lots of specials to choose from can recommend the asparagus, cooked to perfection and the sardines were also great.
