Visited here twice in March; once for cakes and coffee, once for cocktails! It didn't disappoint on either front. The cakes were lovely with a great selection, and the views of the rocky coastline were great (especially appreciated on a windy day from behind the glass!). The cocktails were reasonable (maybe because of the exchange rate!) and good sizes. Didn't... More

Popped in with my wife on the off chance of getting a table. We were in luck and seated over looking over the sea. We both decided on the fresh sea bass. Ordered a bottle of wine and I had a couple of pints. The food came out perfect. So fresh and hot. All the waiting staff are really efficient... More

Paid a total of 15.20€ for still water to the food and a coffee to the cake. One of my friends chose porkchops & chips. The food felt pretty average nothing more or less.... More

It feels like you're entering a castle as you cross the moat/drawbridge into the restaurant...! Inside, it's lights/action/music as you enter a busy, spacious, fun restaurant and bar with plenty of screens showing sports action. When I sat at the bar for a snack, I could tell there was a group of regulars who knew the bar staff, so it... More

We have visited Fortizza in the past and it was quite of, but since more that 8 years we have not been there until a few days ago. I ordered Chicken Turnovers as a starter and they were salty and most certainly not home made. The sauce with which they were served was a mushroom sauce, which was not too... More

I tried both the rabbit and the clams and some of their cakes and my mum had different kinds of pasta. Plus cocktails. Everything was delicious and nicely served
