“Good surf and turf”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

We ate here on our last night in Garda having read the good reviews. The place was very busy and we got one of the last available tables. The service was a bit slow, however we enjoyed the people watching, particularly the two old ladies who brought their own seats and parked themselves at the end of the row of restaurant tables on the promenade! We ate well all week so we bypassed the starters and went straight to the main course. I was missing my protein fix and chose the mixed grill - plenty of meat to keep me happy. Herself took the trout which was beheaded and filleted away from the table - good presentation. Made the mistake of ordering some grilled vegetables which were very expensive at €6.50 a portion. Nice bottle of Valpolicella Superior washed everything down nicely. Overall, a nice experience that we'd be happy to repeat.

“Great evening meals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Great place to eat, we went here twice during a two week stay in Garda. Complimentary salted fish and prawns on our second visit was a bit of a treat.
Meals were very good, the pasta and fish meals are excellent. The Panna cotta comes with two spoons for a reason!
Staff very friendly and helpful. Well worth a visit.

“Two great dinners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

Visited this restaurant twice during a long weekend in Garda. Saturday evening had a large crowd, with mostly italian locals which says a lot I guess. Sea food is their thing although my Pepper Steak on one of the evenings was rather good also. Incredibly crappy menu format, same for the wine list but the actual food is just good stuff.

“Brilliant seafood restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012 via mobile

I nearly ordered the more expensive fish platter but thank heavens went for the cheaper one (about €24) it was huge and plenty for 2 of us. Of you like getting sticky and messy tucking into a mountain of shell fish then go for it. The other stuff looked good too.

They cook the fish whole and then take away the head, tail, bones etc; in front of you.
