Don't bother

Although the staff were friendly, the service was slow and the food was appalling. I ordered sardines but they were so salty, I could not eat them. The food portions were all very small and poor value for money.

Summertime is an example of what a well run traditional family restruant should be. The welcome is always warm and friendly even though we only visit every six months to nine months. The service is great with complementary snacks always served even if you're just having one drink. The food is all cooked from fresh and nothing is too much... More

Friendly family owned and run business. Claudio & Sergio (& staff) will make you very welcome and the fish is exceptional. Very clean and well presented with quiet views over the bay. A glass of Madeira wine is complementary on entry and you will not be pestered at the door as you peruse the menu. All food is cooked to... More

I knew it was going to be a "tourist" trap but was still incredibly disappointed. I ordered a simple Caesar salad - how difficult can this be. If a kitchen can't make this then it's time to give up and close shop. The salad was really awful. I only didn't return it in case I got one back with spit... More

Had the same a my wife but waiter couldn't tell the difference and just plonked the meal on the table and did one. Mine was still mooing so set back. took ages... More

We were welcomed and seated at a nice table and given the menu - then the waiting started. The staff were not attentive at all. We struggled to place our orders. When the food finally arrived, the vegetables were squashy and the meat was very tough. We even had to go searching for a waiter to get our bill. We... More

The fish is a must but that's not taking it away from meat on sticks, in joke with staff. Staff here are friendly helpful and professional. If you were thinking of trying granny's next door don't just come here or go else where

Having had a mornings shopping in the nearby Forum, we called into Summertime on our walk back to our hotel. It was quite busy, but the staff were on attentive and the food delicious. The views from the upper terrace were great, and with a birthday party on at the same time, the atmosphere was very enjoyable,
