Great food, indifferent staff

We fell across La Nave about half an hour before closing after lunch, and the restaurant was emptying of people. In fairness, we didn't realise it was such an exclusive restaurant, but no-one came to greet us, and we dithered uncertainly in the middle of the floor until rescued, rather... read more

Now the food, I am not sure where to begin as it is... More

Oh dear, in this run down resort a once good restaurant has lost its way. The people were charming and honest about the food being sub-standard. Mussels should not be shrivelled and hard if freshly cooked. I suspect the cook had taken an end of season holiday and the restaurant was serving what he had left behind. And half marinated... More
