the food quality was not great, my wife left both her starter and mains as they did not taste good. Old style restaurant with lots of wood which meant that we were visited a few times by big cockroaches during the meal, which the waiter just laughed off as nothing he could do about the dinosaurs.

We first visited this restaurant a few years ago and thought it good & therefore wanted to try it again despite some poor reviews. The night we went it was very quiet which was worrying as other restaurants nearby were very busy, but we decided to give it a try. Our meal was o.k, nothing fantastic but nothing bad either....

Decided last night in resort to eat out. Chose Swordfish, Octopus in garlic and a mixed grill for our less adventurous member. Really good food at reasonable prices. Nice little friendly restaurant, serves local wines and beers. Will go back again.

Poor service, unprofessional staff and tasteless food. (how can you serve a tasteless fish feast? ask their chef) Tourists, don't get attracted by the cheap prices. They are just there to trap people in.

The fish feast was simply tasteless, unpresentable, very small and not filling for a30 eur dish which was disgusting.octopus could not be eaten hard and dry. Potatoes and... More

We were 3 friends, 2 guys one girl: 1) I ordered octopus. Was hard and dry. Just some parsley on the top without any kind of sauce (as I remember in the menu there were more ingredients). I didn't even taste the garlic. I left half of the octopus on the plate and I told to the waiter that I... More

I went there with my parents and we were pretty disappointed. The only lucky customer was my father, he took the rabbit menu and it was quite good (so I recommend the rabbit menu if you go there!!). My mother had a bruschetta and it didn't taste good, it didn't taste of anything. Then she had ricotta ravioli with tomato... More

Visited this restuarant last week and was very disappointed with the meal. Had crusty bread and Maltese sausage for starter which was just cheesey garlic bread with some luke warm greasey lump of meat stuck on top. Yuk!. Main course was Chicken Kiev which consisted of 4 nuked deep fried balls stuck on top of a plate of salad. Overall... More
