My husband and I love to eat at "no menu" degustation restaurants and were excited after much to and froing to get a booking here. The food was all very fresh however it was nothing special. The food itself was all quite rich with nothing to balance the courses with different flavours. My husband likes seafood but found it all... More

I’m baffled as to how this place achieves such an elevated position on T.A. I can only assume that the content of the €35 tasting menu; is of a much higher quality than the food we experienced on our visit. As I said, we didn’t want the tasting menu, (undeniable bargain that it seemed to be). We were just not... More

We visited this restaurant this week, during a roundtrip on Sicily. For us it was the most delicious dinner we had. If you love seafood, just go here. There is a fixed menu, 6 courses. Each course is different in style and taste, but all very nice and pure! From caponata to mussles, it's a feast for your tongue! Price... More

The positive TA reviews are all correct. You just have (1) to be very hungry and (2) to like seafood. We had booked and had a nice corner table in this small restaurant, and just as noted elsewhere the only decision to be made is type of water and colour of wine. You get delicious bread at the start, with... More

We stumbled upon this place. Usually I think you need to make a reservation but we lucked out. There is no set menu. They serve whatever is fresh that day. For 35 euro per person you get a 6 coarse meal, dessert, coffee, water and a bottle of wine. Amazing price. Everything was cooked so unique and beautiful. It was... More

If you like fish then be prepared for the nicest meal ever. 4 courses of amazing fish and pasta.....followed by pudding and coffee. Included is a bottle of water and a bottle of wine !! All this for €35 a head? Wow. So full. Do not eat lunch before going here. Definitely visit here if your local......

Getting a 6 course meal for 35 Eur including wine, coffee and dessert is an amazing deal. Food was fresh and delicious. But don't be fooled, this is no upscale restaurant / fine dining. Food was doled out on the cheapest of Ikea plates by an extremely dour waiter.

we first went here in 2007, after a tip from an Italian friend. Outstanding quality, fresh food, great wine. We went back twice this week and were happy to found it's still there (2014). There is no menu, they serve 6 courses of seafood and pasta, with your drink of choice. Make sure you make a reservation up front, as... More

A superb gastronomic treat. "Degustazione" several courses menu. Better be hungry and make sure to make a reservation. Quality, selection and portions of food are outstanding. Very good wine list. Attentive service. All of this for Eur 35/person.

First time we ate at a menu less restaurant. Excellent service and great value for money at Eur35 a head including cover, wine, water, sorbet and coffee and above all the the fantastic fish courses. The food was great ...oysters, prawns, mussels, clams, spaghetti with shellfish, tuna, grilled fish ...we couldn't eat anymore and had to choose the lemon sorbet... More
