“Amazing food and price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

This place got recommended to us by a local person and was probably one of the best hidden gems around. The food itself was absolutely amazing, nice big portions with lots of flavour and best of all TRADITIONAL. Definitely recommend the seafood (grilled salmon+prawns)as it was the best ive ever had and brilliant value. very good family-run restaurant and wish them the best.

“Terrific value for money!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

We had lunch here last week and were so pleased to have chosen this restaurant. A huge bowl of excellent mussels and the best grilled salmon, done perfectly, which is so often not the case. My husband asked for vegetables instead of potatoes and was served florets of cauliflower and broccoli which were, again, faultless. Service was pleasant and the prices were very reasonable. We asked to see the chef to congratulate her and I can't remember the last time we did that! An easy place to find in town (right opposite the hospital main entrance). Don't miss it!
