Excellent Fish

Enjoyed our first meal here so much we went back another night and were not disappointed. Very good food, great service and good value for money. Fish was particularly good. Unreservedly recommend.

Service was slow and waiters were bit careless, they brought us the wrong wine, and didn't bring the blanket we asked eventually. what really pissed us off was when we saw the tax... More

I was surprise to see that it was a very basic restaurant, not as good as expected. The food was tasty but a bit too greasy, the service wasn't very good.

The restaurant is nice, all its customers are foreigner and unlike many other restaurants its staff speak well English, but it's too expensive for the kind of food it serve, I was on my own and had to pay 40 $ just 2 starters. I wouldn't eat in it again.
