This restaurant is right by the shoreline and offers great views of the sea and provides a nice ambience of seaside life. The servers provided fresh seafood choices and their pasta tastes so good too.

Nice view but way overpriced. Ensure you know exactly how much everything is before placing your order.

We were billed 2 orders of calamari instead of 1 and they put it all on 1 plate so we wouldn’t notice. When we told them we only ordered 1, they refused to do anything about the check. Paid €49 for calamari and water. Crazy....More
