Grilled calamari are very poor. If you have small calamari don't cook in this way!! Shrimp was better but nothing exceptional.

The food is good and not too expensive. Service was relaxed but not slow. It's ok. By all means give it a go. It may appeal to you. It's all down to preferences.

Average size local restaurant. The portions are huge, we shared our portion and it was enough to both. Service is quite good but they have a little problem using the VISA credit card.
