Warning: Reserve in advance! The place is very clean and simply decorated. I had fish. A large platter was brought to the table with an assortment of fresh fish to choose from. Then off it went, to come back perfectly done with a side order of vegetables. A place to return to.

Service excellent, could not fault it. Good atmosphere and surroundings. Food was good however the Parma Ham and Melon I ordered was more salad than melon and ham. My husbands three grilled fish was excellent as was my rib eye steak. Would definately go there again.

This would have got an excellent rating except for the mussels that my husband ordered - they were very tough and also far too salty. the rest of the food was excellent - I had the Lampuki (local type of fish), which was delicious. Nice surroundings and atmosphere, good service.

My starter of lampuki goujons were really good. Crisp and super tasty. But my main of rock fish was served awfully in a large piece of tin foil. It was advertised by the witness as being baked in foil (no problem there) but the meat was then taken off the fish and put into a new piece of foil(!!!) and... More
