Great value for money food

Had our dinner there every day during a family holiday. lovely pizzas and great house wine. Good value for money and friendly staff. Tend to be busy so pre booking a table is advisable (during summer holidays)

I got a large pepperoni pizza and chips and I must say it was simple scrumptious and the staff are friendly and wasn't over expensive. I'll be back again

Great pizza at very decent pizzas, perfect for a quick no frills meal! Friendly service, pizzas where brought out soon after ordering - quick and fresh, you can see them making them in the open plan kitchen! Decent sizes, and very very tasty. Prizes are a very decent price, about €11 each. They also go takeaway if you don't have... More

Stopped in for lunch based on reviews. We ordered pizza and fish cakes, which were a daily special. When fish cake arrived it was cold in the centre but the lovely waitress replaced it quickly with a perfect one. The food is good but not excellent. However the staff are friendly and helpful and the setting is lovely.

With their special oven, the pizza is always fab. But this bistro serves other superb dishes. The place is always busy with locals and tourists, any time of year, due to the quality of the food and great value. So, you should book ahead, even if it's just two of you.

Had a good meal but the place was let down by kitchen staff wandering about the resteraunt and the waitress in and out of the kitchen. Food was excellent and variety was good but the place could have been set out better with a warmer environment and better background music to create a better atmosphere. I will be back for... More
