Quirky, with plenty of street entertainment

Other reviews of this "restaurant" are accurate: one of the sisters who also serves seems to be the boss. She is a good hustler, but can be aggressive...she shows obvious delight when you approve but waspish contempt if you complain or say you prefer not to eat there that day!

It was pouring rain....pouring! The harbour restaurant we where had planned to eat closed. We were waiting for friends who were meeting us for dinner. We were walking around the harbour keeping warm and checking things out....really just looking for some wine and cover while we waited. All the reviews we have read since returning are right...except for the food... More

Strolling along we were "enticed" in by one of the sisters. Well we fancied some sardines so we thought we would give it a try. I advise you not to make the mistake that we made! Five sardines for 3 euro and the rest of the food was of equally bad value for money. Stay away!

Went in after being "hustled" by one of the "smiling" sisters. Asked for a 2 beers and got a large (6Euro) and a small (3Euro). Both weren't full but the small one was only 1/2 a glass. I complained and she snatched it away while "ranting" very loudly. Brought it back just to the line and "banged" it on the... More

We arrived a bit early for our hotel and decided to explore the marina grande. Almost immediately on entering the bay, this lady swooped to try and get us to eat at her place without us having a chance to explore elsewhere. All we wanted was a light bite so we traipsed all the visible options elsewhere, and whilst they... More

What a disappointment. Inveigled in with a false smile from resident harridan. Asked for 2 black coffees. She suggested a lemon cake to share to which we agreed. Coffees were half full cups of Luke warm sugary mush, cake was unappetising tiramisu. Loos were primitive, service rubbish. We were rushed €10 for this inedible snack. Beware.

Firstly you are dragged in off the street these sisters totally intimidate you to eat in here. Secondly I must agree with the other review stating which Jamie Oliver ate there. My partner and I ordered sardines and anchovies we were told there was no anchovies so we said we would have 2 potions of sardines, which the sign outside... More

Wonderful fresh fish in what appears to be a family run restaurant. with the beach on one side this is a great place to relax. Wine was tasty and lunch with wine isn't expensive. They don't take credit cards though

All the reviews are true! The lead waitress hassles , bosses you around etc. The setting is great. The cooking is actually very good, intense flavours, fresh fish, not overcooked. Would probably choose one of the other restaurants in the harbour because of the service, a shame really as good value .
