If you are hungry and can't find any other place to spend your euros, you'll be fed by courteous staff, you'll then have spent your euros and will soon forget what you ate. Nothing to write home about - so if you are looking a foodie experience, this isn't it.

This is the restaurant that belongs to the Hotel Scilla, across the road. There are two parts: a glassed-in verandah and a lower outside terrace.
