This family-run establishment definitely didn't disappoint.
The food was delicious and fresh. We started with a grilled octopus salad. Octopus can be rather tricky to prepare properly and this dish was cooked to perfection. The whole fish was delicious as well, although the table-side filet process may be user-variable. The fish was simply prepared and clearly fresh. Be prepared for your first choice possibly not being available- though to me this is a sign they emphasize quality purchases over quantity.
The atmosphere was pleasantly charming - feels like someone's backyard. They could have been a bit better prepared for nightfall - several candles would have gone a long way.
The service was pleasant and unobtrusive; the cost of the meal was reasonable given the freshness of product and quality of preparation.
Definitely a great find - highly recommend checking it out.
