We had dinner here one evening and the food and service was as good as it had been in the past. It was a pity that it had not been busier. Situated off the main road, up an incline, but worth visiting. We shall be back next year. Would recommend.

This restaurant is a find! It is up a steepish hill, but worth it when you get there. It used to be down by the old Savoy, but had to move when the demolition took place of the Savoy. The menu was very refreshing after 10 days of visiting restaurants all offering almost the same things. My partner had scabbard... More

We like coming to this restaurant and the food is very well presented and tasty, the value is very good, especially if you have the promotional menu. We are surprised that it it not more popular only 3/4 tables occupied both times when we visited this year, makes the place lose a nice atmosphere. Can't make any suggestions, perhaps someone...

Went to this restaurant by chance. We were heading to the Lido area but it was a bit chilly so we found this restaurant which is just down from the Dorisol Hotels. We were staying at the Bougainvillea.If you really want a treat then this is the place to be. The food is exceptional and the staff are very friendly.... More

This was a lovely restaurant and quality of food was great. Lovely little touch by offering a truffle and a fruits of the Forrest wine at end of dinner. It was a little quiet with only about 4 or 5 couples eating. The waiter told us that they have a lot of regulars. Would visit again.

We visited this restaurant a couple of years back and although good in many ways the food was bit lacking in flavour and presentation. This time we very pleasantly surprised by both the innovative menu & cooking and the presentation. We used the meal-deal, with wine included, which was very good value. We will return.

Excellent food, beautifully presented. Since we visited twice last year they have introduced a €20 option for 3 courses (or €26.50 including a bottle of wine and water) which proved very good value. The chocolate fondue dessert is a great favourite of ours.

We had a lovely evening at L'Osteria last night. Good food, good value, well presented and nice wine. I enjoyed every course, the smoked salmon starter, the Spagetti Carbonara, followed by crepes. We would definitely go again.
