Great view, below mediocre food

Nice view, friendly waiter who invites you in. Waitresses who wait on you are not as nice and most importantly the food was way below mediocre. The marinated anchovies I started with looked like they had been sitting there for days, and the main course was only slightly better. Worst food I had in... read more

The view was fantastic on to the beach, but the food was terrible. Pasta tasted like nothing. Service seemed absent and uninterested

After reading all the negative comments about this restaurant I'd already written it off, however, I was walking past one lunchtime and the food being served looked delicious so this prompted the four of us to try it that evening. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food, wine and the service, so much so that we dined... More

Very nice location. Price/quality acceptable. Go for typical local dishes where fresh ingredients are necessary, e.g. cold seafood, salads,... Young unexperienced girls serve the food...

Surprised to see such poor reviews. Recommended by friends who have eaten there before, we had a very pleasant lunch. Yes it is not fine dining but if you want a simple lunch with a great view of the beach and sea plus free wifi then this is the place. The service was prompt and responsive. Mussels in blue cheese...

We got swept away by the beautiful location with the sea view, and that the place was really busy. This and the nice rosé wine were about the only positive points of the dinner experience, unfortunately. The seafood platter as a starter consisted only of mussels and nothing else, the caprese was mediocre. Scallopine dry, so were the fries, pulpo... More

Was served some of the most rotten seafood imaginable. When we complained, the staff was rude. No apologies, no discounts. After paying the bill (which I wish we had not done), I spoke to the manager. He began in English, but when he realised I was complaining, he switched to Italian and pretended not to be able to speak English.... More
