Three of us ate here last night. Beautiful rear garden setting, crisp laid tables in neutral colours. Waiters were polite, helpful and attentive and even bought us a menu in English. We ordered 3 starters to share, fried calamari, octopus tandoori and a baked salt cheese; all were delicious, fresh and tasty. Mains our son had seafood linguine which was packed with shellfish including Balmain Bugs (butterfly fan lobsters), clams, prawns etc. I had 3 huge tiger prawns that were butterflied, and presented with a sauce on the side. My husband had a whole fresh sea bream, which was also presented beautifully. We were then given complimentary desserts of a cake type ice cream with a rich fruit topping, a hot pumpkin and walnut brittle with ice cream and a plate of fresh fruit. Water, a bottle of sparkling wine and a beer to assist the digestion. Total 435 tlr, my opinion the best meal we have had thus far and reasonably priced for such luscious ingredients.

“Wonderful Dinner in Alacati”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

This restaurant is a delight. We looked at the menu and reserved for later the same evening. The garden in back is a pleasant respite from the crowds on the street. Service was warm and caring. We let the waiter select from the variety of fresh fish on offer and it was wonderful. Later, the waiter brought us two delicious desserts - one, a pumpkin dessert was like nothing I ever had before - it was wonderful and worth seeking out. Overall a great experience. Highly recommended.
