“Good pizzas and fish, bad service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

This place has lots of clientele, primarily because of its good value pizzas. Its a very basic location, an outside seating area under a roof with fans (it can get hot!). Cleanliness is poor also.
The food here is varied but primarily the pizzas and the fish are good quality, other meals are not as good. The value for the pizzas is quite good as they are large.
Its an ok environment for a quick bite, though you're better off ordering your meals in advance by phone as waiting times can be ridiculous.
The service on the whole is pretty atrocious, the 5-6 male waiters are totally oblivious to clients and don't really bother to offer you quick or friendly service. Management is totally absent.

“Nice atmosphere, ok food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2010

Ate hear after a long flight and after taking forever to get our bags. It hit the spot. I had the Symphonie moyenne with eau minerale. It was basically a veggie pizza but it was filling.
