As well publicised this is a set meal- no menu, one price. For lovers of fish it is close to nirvana. At the same time none of the dishes alone ranked 'the best'. We had similar dishes with more of a wow factor in other...More

The seafood was of high quality and ample serves. I’d highly recommend you book as it’s impossible to just walk in We were all four foodies so impressed with the taste and freshness of the seafood. The staff are attentive and the whole experience enjoyable....More

Second visit to this restaurant and it didn't disappoint. Each dish of the 7 courses could stand alone, and was delicious. Fresh seafood was the main attraction for us. The time before the fish slightly differed, as it depends on the catch of the day....More

We could not decide what was the most tasty dish - every course has beaten the one we have just finished :) This osteria serves dinner only as a 6-course menu for 35€ incl. bottle of water. Wine is paid extra. Our menu included (as...More
