Friendly service and decent meals in this classic style restaurant. It has three rooms, in different colours and outdoor seating in a courtyard.

Waitress scarcely understood English. Wrong dishes arrived as order not understood. Drinks arrived after dishes and only because we insisted! Avocado inedibly hard, mackerel frozen, the two Caesar Salads we order arrived at different stages as three salads so we had to send one back which made the sulky waitress even sulkier. Really disappointing experience in a country where we... More

Found this place by chance. Menu is in 3 languages. I had the pasta which was excellent, my husband had the flounder which was cooked perfectly. Service was good and faster than in other restaurants in the area, though meat dishes could take up to 45 minutes. Reasonable prices too.

We were encouraged by the look of the house and the stylish decor but our meal on 21/08 was pretty awful. Unhappy and surly waitress who brought us food we had not ordered after a very long wait. One starter arrived 20minutes before the other one - which was not what we had ordered anyway. When the correct order arrived... More

We were recommended to go to this restaurant to try their chocolate muffin with an ice-cream. I'm not a big fan of muffins but this one was really special! Stuff is nice and I'd say that restaurant is cozy if not a quite strange music choice. It was not too loud or anything, just some usual pop which discorded with... More

Got there late evening, around 21, the restaurant was empty. Service was really fast and all the dishes from the menu card were available. Tasty, but small portions - for a man to be full only one second course is not enough - starters are a must :)

The venue has a very nice atmosphere and great potential. However, the restaurant is close to a disaster. Also for us all of the interesting food was claimed to be sold out. When we finally ordered our "yeah whatever" dishes it took around 45 minutes to get them, and one of them was dry and boring. The other one fine.... More

Very disappointed with this place after reading glowing reviews. Half of dishes not available and what we were served (mains flounder and curry prawns) definitely very average seafood. Flounder overcooked and dry. Prawns 'fishy' in a too sweet tomato based risotto. Both appetiser soups OK though mushroom and mutton. Not sure if the chef was having an off night but... More

I recommend this restaurant for all who wants to eat freshly cooked, delicous food for average price. Portions was big, meals great, the stuff helpful and kind. We spend there very nice dinner time.

Authentic Nice old style seaside restaurant. We like to dine there, nice atmosphere, tasty food. Prices not too high. Service good. Parking nearby. Location near town centrum. All atmosphere makes nice feelings with real old marine captains and fishermans items around. Aquariums with Sturgeon alive inside makes also good memories.
