Still nice to go

We come here since the opening.

Eating outside next to the yachts, beautifully fresh sardines cooked Mediterranean style, full of what looked like locals. Service was speedy too.

Faulous place, write your own name on the board for reservations, wait and drink some wine. Sit on benches next to other people, eat huge bowls of Moules, sardines, gambas. Very cheap like 8euros ... Mop up with bread.... Drink more rose wine and finish with a cornetto style dessert. No fuss, fabulous food and buzzing atmosphere...... Gutted we didn't... More
