After 100 restaurants with the same kind of menu (with awful pictures of the food), we found this place. Very Good and fresh food for a normal price. Worth visiting!

Recently returned from a weeks break and dined in this family restaurant twice, on both occasions quality and standards consistently good. We enjoyed the Stuffed squid, Octopus salad and Scampi risotto all freshly sourced and thoroughly recommended. The house wine both red and white offered great value. Service very friendly and helpful.

We ate here on several nights and the fish was always very good, really fresh and perfectly cooked. We also had some of the best and largest scampi we have ever had. They were expensive but well worth it.

The restaurant as the terrace look really nice. Waiters are friendly. Price - quality isn't great, or perhaps we shouldn't have ordered fried fish and rocket salad....

We weren't eating here, but twice we had coffee (and dessert) and it was ok.i know they offer some fish dishes, but can't say about them.I can say just that one house before, there is also a restaurant, with mostly the same...
