While on holiday in Sisan, we had lunch or dinner in this restaurant almost every day. Service sometimes a bit shaky, but Always very friendly. And some lovely dishes you want to come back for: carpaccio (prepared with eye for detail), black risotto, spaghetti with seafood (spicy), calamares for the kids ... We hope to return next summer.

This hotel has a fantastic restaurant. Very friendly staff and the food is great. We visited during the local celebration of asparagus and cuttlefish and they had a specially designed 3 course meal and wine for this season. Was very reasonable and well designed menu.
