“Repeat excellence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Once again we were favourably impressed by this restaurant.
Our visit was on a Friday hight when there were more locals present than when we have been there mid-week in previous years.
Both main courses were excellent-mixed fish with prawns and mixed grill. There was (unlike many restaurants) a reasonable choice of half bottles of red and white wine.
The sweets were well received-especially the 'heavenly pudding'.
The service was very good but not obtrusive.
Once again it was the best restaurant visited on our recent stay.
Highly recommended.

“A disastrous meal”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

Cafeteria type ambience. No atmosphere. The head waiter was arrogant, but younger waiters were most attentive.
The food!!! was beyond belief. Poorly presented, colourless and overcooked.
Best part of the evening was the complimentary taxi service to and from the restaurant.
