The owner of the B&B booked us in here on a Monday night after we had problems finding somewhere open after a late trip back. At the side of the harbour but set back against the buildings. This place had a different feel less touristy, with the clientele perhaps older and more Italian. This was the place we struggled the... More

We were 11 for dinner, shared some starters and a main dish for everyone, some bottles of wine, water and NO desserts. They had an "error" in their billing and were about to charge us nearly 700 euro for this dinner. Once pointed out that the bill was wrong, they charged us 440 euro! Quite a difference, so watch out... More

We had a very nice lunch of prawns over a bed of greens and two fresh-made pastas, one with mixes seafood and the other with clams and asparagus. The staff spoke a little English and were friendly and helpful.

I have to say that this is one of the best seafood restaurants I've visited in Puglia. It is very pricey though but worth the money if you are a lover of fish and shellfish. I had sea bream with vegetables and I know that the fish was fresh because we watched the fishing boats coming in and delivering their... More

I am one who believes that an owner needs to take an interest in his customers' satisfaction. Although the owner was very much present, he made no contact with his customers -- not a nod, a smile, or a word. The food was good, yes, but the arrogance and indifference of the owner helped us decide not to return the... More

This almost feels like home. If you go more than once, the staff treat you like old friends. The fish is the freshest and usually caught that day from just across the road! There is more than just fish, great seafood, delicious vegetables and salads and scrummy puddings. No pretentions, just good honest fish and a warm welcome. If you... More

Stylish restaurant, with a little more than just simply grilled fresh fish. Friendly waiters, but they speak only Italian (which is the case in allmost all restaurants in Otranto)

We tried the zuppetta, the crudo and two pasta with fish. Everything was very fresh and cooked in a simple way. We also tried some local wines which were suggested by the waiter. Very good wines and food for e reasonable price.

We enjoyed the freshness of the fish. We had seen the fisherman selling their catch right nearby the night before. Some items on the menu were not available because they had not been a part of the catch. The Insalata Mista was big and delicious with wonderful fresh greens and tomatoes. Very pleasant service
