Avoid at all costs! We waited an hour and a half for reheated and burnt food. Staff couldn't care less. Not a good experience

Awful food swimming in grease and oil and awful service. There was a draught inside the restaurant and we were uncomfortable as it was too cold. We asked the guy standing at the door who seems to be the owner to close the door but very rudely he told us that if we didn't like it we could leave. Since... More

I don't usually write reviews.. But this meal truly inspired me.... I definitely had to warn anyone who is planning to go... In short... - We got free bruschetta.... And by bruschetta, I mean dry bread with diced tomatoes and human hair - We ordered wine, a t-bone cooked rare, and ravioli. - After about 45 minutes we had to... More

We had a set menu meal of a fish soup starter followed by a shellfish platter for my wife and scampi/calamares for me. With an included glass of wine each, this was excellent value for 20 euros. We enjoyed the meal.

In the summer service is outside on the seafront you have to sit and wait forever. There are many staff working there normally you have wait over 20 minutes for the order to be taken... More

We wanted to give this a try due to the nice view. Unfortunately we had to organize a menu ourselves, as no one was paying attention. The tables and the menu were filthy - the plastic pages had not been cleaned in a very long time. Overall the place had many dirty u cleaned tables, and dirty dishes were being... More
