Friendly English speaking staff, good food and interresting menu. Very pleased that we were recognised the second time we visited, even on busy days in the high season. Our queries reegarding allergies were handled seriously and professionally.

Loved the place! Great food at reasonable price. Really interesting dishes, combination of ingedients and mix thereof incl. fresh, tasty fish. The road the restaurant is located at is completely closed during summer time and all restaurants there use the road as their terrace. Busy, lovely location with lots of locals as well as tourists. Would recommend any time 😊.

On first impressions the place appears a little chaotic. However this was due the busyness. The set menu for 32 euro was excellent quality and very good value for money. Menus are also available in english if required however the waiters spoke very good english. The foie gras was tasty, steak, perfectly cooked and seasoned and the dessert was different... More

The service and food here was great! The 32 euro menu is perfect, tasty and good value for money! Worth a look! They have menus in English if you need it, but the waiting staff were very pleasant and spoke excellent English

Food was absolutely delicious and presentation was nice and colored. Quantities where calculated at best. Inside's ambience was relaxing. Service was perfect, waiters where very kind. The only negative thing was the toilet. There was no hand soap at all. There was a closet, so I decided to look inside minding if the soap could have been there. Only thing... More

We ate here on a Saturday night after having difficulties getting reservations in a couple of other restaurants that we had planned to try. The decorating is trendy and the wait staff were nice but the food was really disappointing. We had the tuna for entrée, it was ok but bland, then the mains which were the whole bar and... More

We enjoyed our visit here, the room looked great and the menu interesting, but the actual food on your plate was a little disappointing - the descriptions better than the taste. Still, a cool vibe and perhaps they were having an off day.

As a party of 14 without a booking on a Saturday night it can be challenging to find somewhere to take you but having been here a few years back I was keen to try again.The Chef/proprietor came out of the kitchen to greet us and arrange a table for 40 minutes later after some earlier diners had finished.
