We visited during our recent stay, both had mussels, I had the garlic cream sauce and husband had white wine. Both excellent and enjoyed with a rose wine. Always busy with locals and holidaymakers.

Funny place, good coffee and the food was alright. They let dogs inside the restaurant and the dog was sitting on the chair eating in a plate.. Lots of locals come here to have a beer at night and it gets pretty lively.
