Positive: Helpful staff and free transfer from our hotel..... But, noisy entertainment, at best, average food ( limited menu, only a few courses could the kitchen prepare).

Excelent price -quality ratio for a fish restaurant. Not too many choices but each dish is excelent, fresh and prapaired in a special way. Really good service, kindness. At the end we were surprised about home made desert on a house and apple tee.
