Loved the waiting staff and the very good wine. Blackboard with lunch and dinner specials shows good mix of menus and relaxed but efficient service left us feeling happy.

Advised that this restaurant was near our hotel so ideal for our first night after a long day travelling. We ordered pizza as we wanted something quick. They were excellent as was the service. My anchovies came on a separate plate with a dressing, a nice touch. We went again for a meal after a very long day's sightseeing opting... More

This restaurant is part of The Grand Mediterrano which is next door. Service is definitely better here although not brilliant. Had to go and find waitress to pay for our meal after repeatedly asking for the bill. Eventually we were given the bill only because we made our way towards the door. Food was lovely.

Next to Hotel Mediterranio (forget having food there please), this was my only choice for dinner but Voila after 1st day I made it my deliberate choice. This place serves lovely food topped with excellent service. Must try

Food is OK but the staff are honestly a disaster...three girls waiting on tables with their daily chit chat taking of more importance...the chefs wandering about in the dirty whites on their mobile phones and being totally ignored in between courses..by the time you get dessert you wished you had brought along your pillow from the hotel next door.

So after a long fun-filled day, we were too exhausted to go anywhere or eat anything. Well, maybe I should disclose that I was the only one not hungry, because the hubs needed a snack/munchie. There’s not much around our hotel sans this place. A carryout margherita pizza and a soda were what we got. The margherita pizza wasn’t the... More

Whilst the food was reasonable at a fair price the service was poor. It was impersonal. If you want quick food with no chit chat aka a fast food outlet then this place might suit.. But it wasn't for us :( Peter Appleton Hobart Australia

I was very tempted to eat at this restaurant, but it seemed very dirty. I never saw anyone at this place anyway.

stayed next door at the Grand Mediterraneo. Was too tired to go anywhere else so just ate next door. Free WiFi. Good Food. Good Prices. Good Service.
