Phoned from the UK and booked on strength of most of the reviews I had seen. Was vindicated. Had a good table at the back of this small restaurant. Waiter took pride in showing us the fresh fish on offer (mackerel, sea bream, sea bass, Dover sole, Lemon sole, plaice). All looked so fresh. Nothing sophisticated about the décor here... More

Thank you to our hotel for recommending Bistro Rosa - we could so easily have passed it by especially whilst building works are going on. I much prefer the atmosphere of something like this to the standard hotel fare. We enjoyed lobster/prawns and turbot and found the puddings surprisingly good.

This tiny bistro sits in an alley en route to the fish market. The evening we dined there was spoilt by the continual noise from the small kitchen wash-up area. Our table was right up near the counter and we could hardly talk to each other. Food was good however, though current construction work makes it an un-attractive setting.

Only 20 or so covers, and no view to speak of BUT what a fabulous meal. Youre in the fish market so the taste buds are inclined to give the surf a try! Turf is an option too but I recommend you mix it with at least a little shellfish. Coming from Wiltshire theres not a great deal of fish... More

Small and friendly. Great food, good service. Must book to make sure you don't miss out. This was our second visit and we introduced two locals, now converts.
