A bit hit and miss

It was a busy Thursday night and the place was pumping. The service was good considering the number of patrons but the food was a bit up and down. For the mains, a scallop dish was quite reasonable and the roasted cod was also good. A Basque style lamb shank was also reasonable. A south... read more

The atmosphere was good (as in all off the restaurants at this time of year) and the service pleasant enough but rushed and our first course came almost immediately after we finished our starter. The squid not bad but the main course i.e. Wok prawns and chicken taijin awful and bland. The prawns were tasteless and floating around in a... More

They didnt even have enough bread, it was frozen bread and they had.to reheat som to give it to us. The meat was hard and with no... More

We went there for dinner and the menu was 32€ but we end up paying 50€ each. The food was less than average and the service very slow. In Price-quality terms: not worth it!!

We sat outside on the bustling street, the atmosphere was nice but the food was not and the service slow and confused. We asked for a childrens chair when we sat down and was promised one but it never came, until we asked 20 minutes later. The menu is a bit short, and the food was bland and boring. No... More

Tasty, stylish, well presented bistro food. Amazing raw tuna starter and scallops for main course. Pleasant service, busy ambiance. Only downside is that food is served rapidly and one feels that the table is required again for the evening. Definitely will return.

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 😊.

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.

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
