This restaurant caters for tour groups and will not accept reservations for parties of less than 10 people. So if you return at opening time, you may find that it is already booked out .This was our experience. There are plenty of good restaurants in the main street and less touristy further up the hill that do take reservations for... More

Came across this restaurant by chance, walking by. It was the best choice for food quality, having tried several restaurants over four days. Loved the ambiance and fellow diners tend to be friendly too.

The food was amazing and the price was not too bad for the quality of the food. The portion size was disappointing though, so be warned. The mussels we ordered were perfectly cooked and was actually a good portion, the garlic soup used to cook them was amazing. Centolla with Roquefort was delicious but the tiny portions wont allow me... More

The restaurant was about half empty, and when we asked for a table for 2 they said we could only sit at one table squashed amidst others. There were plenty of other tables, admittedly for 4 but they could have separated the tables. They refused to let us sit there. To my annoyance the next couple who arrived sat exactly... More

I have to admit the crab was very good but a small dish with no sides. In the end one had to order everything a la carte and it was quit expensive. We had: King Crab (very tasty) Seafood sou (average and a tiny portion for $10) Scallops (average) Salad (average) This restaurant had good views and was recommended in... More

The service is good. Great starters... try the Palta favorita = avocado with kingcrab. Enjoyed it!

You have to go early because it is small and very popular, Best crabs ever! Good service (a little slow but worth it). Would have loved to repeat it but had no time.

If you like King Crab, this is the place to go. A small restaurant overlooking the pier. The service is great and the King Crab is the best in town. We have been to this restaurant in 2011 and 2013 and both times, it did not disappoint.

Tia Elvira was well staffed y la sopa de brodo era bueno. Tambien el pan casero. The omelete was under cooked. The wine list was pretty good, maybe 3.5 out of 5 for the wine. Los Cholgas no eran fresco. Yo no pudia comerlas, y la duena no queria saber que no eran frescos. I complained but did not receive... More
