Excellent little taverna tucked away in a side street, but what a welcome and lots of lovely traditional dishes. The manager is just like Manuel from Fawlty towers both in looks and attitude, a great laugh and the waitress is lovely, couldn't be more helpful xx

Wonderful welcome,food and service. If you love prawns this is a must-they were to die for! Matilda, the waitress, was lovely and so helpful with choices from the menu. This place is very popular with the locals which says it all.
