This family-run restaurant is quite simply excellent and knocks into a cocked hat the more pretentious ones in the immediate vicinity. We found this restaurant on the very first evening of our holiday and couldn't help wondering where we would possibly find somewhere to better it! The clean, pleasant, light décor sits well with the friendly and, indeed, vivacious staff, whose happy and attentive attitude helps to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere, without being overbearing. I was struck by the quiet busy-ness and relaxed murmur of conversation, whilst I addressed the most delicious plateful of pork marinated in wine and garlic - preoccupation with which rendered my own relaxed conversation with my husband non-existent for quite a few minutes! In all, we visited this restaurant 3 times in 10 days, which is really quite something for two people a bit obsessed with trying to eat somewhere different every night (on holiday, that is...)! We did go to some of the other restaurants neighbouring this one, and found them sadly lacking, in comparison. The quality of the fish here was particularly good.
