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

We hate not being able to choose from the menu. But we felt totally reassured by this restaurant from the second we stepped in. They explained it would be 5 courses for 35E each including cover, bread, wine and water. Each and every dish was delicious and we felt thoroughly spoilt and by the 4th dish we were so full... More

Everything from the excellent service, the delightful variety of the menu-less multiple fish courses to the outstanding panna cotta desert were greatly enjoyed by our party of five. We will definitely book here again when we next visit. Excellent value and a most enjoyable meal.

No need to navigate a menu. The capitano of this restaurant does all the hard work. He serves the finest seafood; so fresh it seems it is straight from the boat. From the first course to the sixth, your only complaint will be wishing you tummy could fit in more of this chef's superb cuisine. 35 Euros per head, included... More

We were asking around for good seafood for lunch and this was recommended by someone from a shop where we buy souvenirs. It is highly recommended. Friendly service and very good seafood indeed. By the time we found it, it was quite late and the time show that it was close but maybe because there is many of us so... More

We found it with my girlfriend through tripadvisor. The restaurant only offers a set menu, so it is not suitable for people that avoid fish. Also, please note that you would be required to book beforehand. For all the rest, don't miss it! Everything, from the starters to the dessert and the wine were amazing. This restaurant offered one of... More

This restaurant offers great value for money. Six courses for € 35 per head. The first courses consisting of various mussels, clams, raw fish and shellfish was really great, but the later dishes of tuna* and swordfish was dry and tasteless. If you run a sea food based restaurant you should know how to cook fish properly. This was disappointing.... More

This restaurant offers a culinary experience based on degustation of various plates all based on fish. It was far better than expected and extremely good value for money (a 6 course degustation meal at €35 per person including a wine bottle between 2). 72I particularly loved the starters (a mix of plates based on raw fish, a shellfish soup and...
