I've been here several times over a rather extended timespan. They need to work on consistency. Sometimes fairly good, sometimes utterly below average. Sorry guys, but this is not professional catering.

I was fooled by all the Tripadvisor awards in the window, to experience an overpriced small meal, scollops were very over cooked, bone dry, the second course of BBQ seafood was soggy, small and not fresh. Perhaps I was foreign, that accounts for the lack of service and poor meal. The only up side is you can see the ocean,... More

Right in the harbour, no frills, straightforwardly delicious Italian seafood. Beautifully fresh fish and shellfish, simple strong flavours. Efficient service. Good value, and deservedly popular with locals and visitors alike.

I was the guest at a breakfast at thi restaurant and the experience left me completely disenchanted. It's very prices, so there is an expectation to be "won-ed" which fell completely flat from the moment we walked in the restaurant was no busy but the service was extremely slow and inattentive. Never again.

We had the local fish and it was very fresh and well prepared. The cost was reasonable and the service was unobtrusively good. Setting was classic harbor in the middle of summer. For 25 euros, we had a nice bottle rose. You won't be disappointed.

We arrived late after poor service and no food in our hotel but we were greeted with open arms and given exceptional service. The seafood was wonderful and prepared simply without being overpowered with sauces. We will definitely return when in the area again!

The seafood was very nice, and so was the wine. We suspect that the puddings (tart tatain and chockolate fondant) were bought from some industrial producer, which is no good! During our stay a bunch of kids was running about shouting and screaming. Nothing for the restaurant to do about it we suppose, but it was still very annoying!
