My husband and I stopped in for a quick lunch prior to starting our day of exploring. Neither of us were very happy with our meals, I had the swordfish and he had mussels and prawns. The food took forever, and when it came out it had no flavor. It was disappointing.

Fresh fish cooked in authentic way! Don't get afraid bu the not fancy looking of the place. You get the impression that the cook loves cooking. Outstanding

We where two who had a dinner at this nice evening at Ximo. The staff was very helpful and friendly(family run). The swordfish was great and the filet steak could had been more medium as requested. Go to Ximo for the seafood! Good value.

Ximo offers a simple menu tailored for the local people and the tourist in mind. Dishes range from burgers, salads, fresh soups, meats and fish. Wine is also served the coffee is superb. Try their Spaghetti Vongole, which is a simple spaghetti dish served with fresh local clams cooked in butter and white wine with a dash of sea salt... More

We have eaten at this restaurant on many occasion usually for lunch with friends and family. The service and the food are always very good - fish and seafood are always. fresh and cooked perfectly very tasty. Salads are always fresh and the desserts/cakes are particularly good - the apple cake is divine!

Once again Ximo delivers on service, quality of food and value. Love this place can't wait to go back. Highly recommend the octopus, however the fish and seafood is always second to none.

The food was delicious and the service excellent. The owner/chef came to our table to answer... More
