You can taste the real Pizza Napoletana, with its vivacious tastes, crunchy crust and smoky fragrance as it comes out from our greatly appreciated wood-fired oven.Your stay will be accompanied by enjoyable music of several genres and our nice and pleasant guys.We always serve you without delays our gorgeous and affordable meals, so you can get fully satisfied and bring us with you in your hearts and around the world. In the evening, the restaurant changes its dress and gets a warmer and more romantic ambience.

The worst restaurant ive been in years.We chose it because it was one of the few restaurants that were close to the beach. Service was terrible:One of us in the table got her pizza. We waited for our others meals for 10 minutes, but then she had to start eating before the food gets cold. She finishes her meal and then we get in contact with the waitress. she runs around, chats with other waitresses and then comes back and comes out that they lost our order. no apologies, she just says that it'll take 2 minutes.
20 minutes more and another waiter comes to us and tells that its going to take 5 minutes. He does not apology or ask if there is need for more drinks.
We wait a while more and another waiter comes and says its gonna be just another minute. No apologies. We wait a bit more.

Then we finally get the food, after a looong loong wait and it really wasnt worth it. potatoes that came with a fish fillet were terrible, gummy,and tasted like they were cooked the day before and after a night in fridge been heated in microwave. fish wasnt very tasty ether, texture was like it had been re heated.
another dish had just badly battered mix of whole small fish. it looked like they just threw everything they could find from the beach into a too little batter and then to deep fryer.
Pasta carbonara was huge but tasteless.

Sorry, but got nothing good to say. Unskilled waitresses, terrible food, no A/C...

“Good Food, Good Service, Good Price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

This has to be the best restaurant on the island. In Canada, a restaurant like this, on a beach, in a touristy area, would have high prices, rude staff and yukky food.

This one has the opposite. The food was delicious, the staff, friendly and attentive, the prices were less than we expected by a long way.

Keep up the great work.
