“Two differing nights but mostly recommended”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

We ate here on our first night and our last. Couple of things common to both nights were - great harbourside location, great warm service (the Italian-American Spanish-speaking host is great host), and the only enjoyable House White Wine we had all week! The only differences was it was obviously quieter on the Monday than the Saturday and the chef was different - I preferred the quality of the Pizzas on the Monday the Wife on the Saturday but suppose its subjective. And both were great value in a great setting.

“Maybe we were unlucky!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

Judging from the previous reviews we expected a very good restaurant, we were disapointed. We may have just been there on an unlucky evening but the chicken salad we ordered was very poor and certainly did not live up to the recent reviews. Pizza and chips were good and the location at the end of the strip of resturants on the corner with tables overlooking the sea and adjoining the small beach, had the potential to make for an excellent evening. The prices were reasonable but unfortunately the chicken salad ordered as one of the main meals spoiled the evening and only rates an average score for that night. Would we give it another chance and eat there again? No.

Lovely setting right on seafront. Service very good and waiters very cheerful. Ordered pizzas which were homemade and delicious. Thought price was very fair.
