Not worth your time or money

Ordinary food. Expensive for what's served. No help from waiters who won't make an effort for tourists but are nice to locals. Go somewhere else.

To tell the truth no advise needed because all is amazing and home made. The fish is great and all fresh. We were here twice once in 2013 and now in 2014. We would certainly go... More
