Amazed this still remains only €35 pp after many years. We requested that each course be brought separately, after finishing the previous, to enjoy the evening. Staff accommodated. €7 bottled white mouse eine was an inexpensive, suitable option although we saw others with other wines....More

I went to this restaurant based on recommendation from a local Sicilian. I had the tasting seafood menu for only 35 euros for 6 courses. The restaurant is run by a father and son with father cooking. It can easily be found off the main...More

This restaurant is fantastic and one of the best fish-y meals I've ever had. It's small - so I imagine booking is needed during spring/summer/autumn. I went there in January, so it was easy to get a table but the place was still almost full...More

Cosy little restaurant with the most amazing seafood selection. They have only a few tables, all in high demand so make sure you book ahead. They have a set menu of 6 courses, all are delicious - but loads of work to get through. Enjoy...More

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

Quality of the seafood served is very good, although at 35 euro each, without wine, a little pricey. I wouldn't return but only because there are no a la carte options, and 7 courses of seafood is too much for me. Pleasant staff.

We booked after reading so many positive reviews. The food was nice enough but bear in mind the price point of 35 euros for 6 courses which for a fish menu is on the low side. The menu we had was mostly shellfish like mussels...More

You should contact the restaurant directly to ask them their closing dates and times. However, be advised that their premises are very SMALL. As I recall they only have a half dozen tables in total so unless you are going to... More
