Great find. This fish restaurant does fresh fish at reasonable prices. The quality is good and thus continues with lovely fresh bread and tasty fresh green local olive oil. The tuna carpaccio was excellent, the squid tasty and the swordfish moist and perfectly cooked. The local wine was reasonable and good value.
