Watch the staff!

The food was good, but our initial experience was poor. We were 3 customers & asked for water first of all while we chose from the menu. A piece of paper was slipped "discreetly" on the edge of our table. I looked at it & saw that we were being charged for 4 covers(we were only 3), 2 bottles... read more

I should have looked at the reviews before going there. Average food. They bring you in with a low cost menu and then they don't have parts of it or that you need to pay extra. ... avoid it...

This was the dinner from a sitcom! We were amused at the beginning by the theatrical performance of overly serious waiters crowding to serve us, until everything started to go wrong. First, they brought the main course before the starters, then they crowded again around our table pushing us to finish it. Then they brought the burnt chewy and unable... More

This was one of the classic tourist traps that we fell for (our own fault:) as we just randomly walked there without having researched or just looked around for a bit longer. The menu was really long and that's already not a good sign but we were being too polite to leave at that moment, so we stayed. My boyfriend... More

We had the tourist menu based on fish. I had stuffed squid for main course, which was good however the antipasto and the first course were even better. For antipasto I had marinated anchovies while for first course the fish couscous. The food portions are also adequate. The atmosphere is nothing special as the restaurant is big and noisy however...

We had the Tourist menu and we were not impressed at all. The food is of average quality. However the service was fine and the staff was friendly.

Overfried seafood, terrible oily taste, heavily fried, I couldn't finish it, antipasti seafood from a bottle too, over cheesy pasta, for sure not freshly made, it's cheap & nasty but great views and great waiters. Give it a BIG miss.

Literally the worst restaurant I’ve ever been to in my life. The mixed fish plate arrived cold, only 5 minutes after I ordered it. It was inedible, so I tried to eat the least disgusting thing on my plate. My boyfriend ordered a first, and second plate (that were both horrible). While my boyfriend was eating a waiter took away... More

I usually avoid touristy menus, but everything was closed (restaurants, shops...) and we were just arrived, tired and hungry. We went to this restaurant and expected to eat as we actually did, so no bad surprises in the end. Service - The waiters were not attentive, but easygoing and, if nudged, fast. - I saw the chef playing football with... More
