Nice with quality, but could do much better

Nice and small restaurant. Good quality food prepared in a pretty decent way. Unfortunately only big fishes for the grill when we were there, so even for 2 people it was not a viable option.

Small intimate restaurant with a seafood menu. Langostine Gnoci great. I could have tried to eat another helping but I had ordered fish in lemon butter equally good. My wife had Prawns and grilled seasonal vegetables she loved every mouthful. Yes we would go back. Tried somewhere else on another night, only because we could not get a table before... More
