Nice people, lovely setting & sunset, service a little slow

Set menu; we enjoyed everything we were offered: good ingredients, local seafood & produce. They accommodated a gluten-free request. The lobster pasta seemed to have mostly minced clams, not much lobster- more accurately called 'lobster sauce'. Service started out excellently, but as the... read more

The restaurant is located in a perfect place, overlooking the bay. The sunset is one of the best we saw. Service was excellent. The food though was nothing to write home about. It was average food trying to be more sophisticated but not really there. The menu is a fix one 38 euros per person (before wine). The gelato in... More

Set menu; we enjoyed everything we were offered: good ingredients, local seafood & produce. They accommodated a gluten-free request. The lobster pasta seemed to have mostly minced clams, not much lobster- more accurately called 'lobster sauce'. Service started out excellently, but as the restaurant became very busy (Saturday evening), we were ignored. Locals (or native Italian speakers) received preference. With... More

Set on the mountain side over the Med, the location is AMAZING, the terrace tables are the place to be. Fixed menu, that you can trust will bring the local flavors mastered by the kitchen. The pasta dishes are full of seaside flavor, and distinct local twist. The service is good, but very casual. The wine choices are as expected,... More

Pretend to be a fine cuisine restaurant, but the result is really far away from that. Fish dishes are almost without fish, probably they want to save it. The price (only for food, no wine) is double compared to a traditional trattoria/restaurant . Aperitivo cocktail (caipiriña) was awful... Really difficult to make an undrinkable cocktail... The location is nice, sunset... More
