We were recommended this restaurant if we wanted a good steak by a local. We were happy for discovering this so early in the week. Normally we wouldn't eat many nights at the same restaurant, but this is meat heaven! Shameless we ate here three nights in a week, and it would be worth it flying back again for a... More

We visited in September on a evening, without a reservation. The restaurant seemed reasonably well visited at least the terrace was. We came with a dog, medium sized, smaller than a retriever,well behaved, but unfortunately we were not allowed inside. It was a pity, i had my mind set on German standards and expected to sit inside as dogs are... More

Being American, we did not think the beef here could equal U.S. beef. We were wrong. Excellent quality and perfectly cooked. Understated decor but we sat on terrace across from marina and were very comfortable. Alot of locals plus tourists. We had pepper steak and tornadoes. See photo. Almost too much. Could have shared. Price for the same in U.S.... More

We were recommended this restaurant and gave it a try. As vegetarians there was not a huge choice, but we are used to that. The portions were huge and the quality and value were excellent. It is a nice relaxed place to eat in a great location and we are definitely coming back in week 2 of our holiday.
