Hidden away but a real gem. excellent food presentation. we went off the set menu and were both very impressed. Excellent cocktails made well (im a trained cocktail waiter) Not the cheapest, but atmosphere was worth it, service was good and food was excellent.

High standard of cuisine, coupled with great restaurant atmosphere. Very courteous/happy staff and the ambience was perfect. I had duck main course and it cooked perfectly. I have been many times and it has consistently exceeded my expectations. Thank you and your staff very much!

This is a great little Bistro tucked away just off the Main Street, at first glance it looks as if it is mostly an outdoor restaurant but there’s a large indoor area, it had a good atmosphere, we had steaks which were really good

Ate O'clock has a good range of food and brilliant quality. The deep fried brie and the calimari are my favorite starters. However the real star of the show here is the cocktails, they have a great range of all the clasics, extremely well made...More

Bland starters, average mains, but good service. Nothing special. Not sure how it achieves the rating it has.

Great central location, and lovely food. Well priced special offers and good deals on cocktails. We booked a table on a very cold night and the restaurant was warm and very pleasant to enter. Great staff..could not have done more for you

This was very quiet for a late lunch on a Wednesday, but then aren’t most places. My daughter and I were seated along the back wall, which was a nice quiet spot. Service was unobtrusive. Good selection of drinks and cocktails, with some good offers....More

I'm sure they are open Sundays but just double check on their website. It's about a 10 min walk from your hotel. Enjoy

We only ate lunch but there was a selection of soups, tomato & goat cheese risotto, pan-fried halloumi cheese on Niçoise salad etc. There may have been other selections on the board but I can't remember.

The restaurant offers a relaxing, friendly atmosphere with courteous, efficient staff. Our menus use fresh, local produce, cooked to order, and mostly home-made. Outside allows for lunch in the sun, a pre-dinner drinks area, or after dinner coffee chill-out zone. The seating arrangements, parasols and outside heated lamps make the area comfortable all year round.
