I visited the restaurant with a bunch of friends on 11.07.2020. We had a marvelous lunch. The seafood was fresh and well cooked. The cocktails were also very nicely prepared. The service was excellent. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who loves to...eat authentic fresh seafood dishes.More

It was great to get out of the hotel and venture out. The restaurant was clean and the staff were very friendly and pleased to see us. Our waiter brought over the platter of fresh fish to help us visualize the menu. We ended up...with two 1.5kg lobsters to split between 4 of us. Recommended.More

Overcooked everything! including house-specialty lobster 🦞 Service is nice and they show you the charge after you pick your fishes, they weigh it and show you your total cost before cooking it, which is refreshing. But I expected more from a seafood restaurant that is...supposed to be good. Lobster, freshwater prawns, filet, octopus - every single thing was way way overcooked. For 34 years in business - something is way off.More

The seafood here was just great. It’s simply prepared and tastes delicious because it’s great quality and they don’t have to hide it with lots of flavors or sauces. I had the fresh giant prawns - plain grilled with some garlic butter and vegetables on...the side. My mum is vegetarian and the vegetarian dishes did not disappoint. Lovey staff and good service. I will definitely be going there again, and telling others about this place!More

We visited Amigo for lunch a couple of weeks ago. We instantly felt very welcome. The place has a cosy and rustic feel to it. The waiter was very attentive & the owner himself came to introduce himself, wished us a pleasant experience and advised...us on the menu of the day. We were offered some fish goujons as an aperitif. The cocktails were great. The wine was good. I had the parrot fish in garlic butter, which was delicious. My friends had fillet of Dorade and king prawns .. which were also delicious. It was a refreshing change to have good service, great food and at the same time the personal touch. Highly recommended!More

The food was amazing and as expected seeing other reviews. The restaurant is not in the usual busy area and I think it’s underrated from the reviews online. From the entrees to desserts and wine everything was amazing including the price. They also catered for...allergies/intolerances and adjusted dishes for us.More
