We were a group of 12 so had a reservation. Delicious meal with great service in a small but quaint setting on the square. The tuna was a highlight for many. The local dishes were very good.

This restaurant served some of the best seared tuna that I have ever had, with prompt and helpful service, delicious cake for dessert. It has outdoor seating but alas, our group was too large

We are a family of four (me, my wife and our two kids). Without question, this is the best food (by far) among that street of restaurants. Our server was very friendly and spoke English. Highly recommended!
