We were very happy with the food. It was tasty and cheap. The service was also good. The restaurant is in a quiet area with a good view of the sea

Latish dinner for us here, and being at the far end of the port at least we could park outside !!! Good food, reasonably priced, draught beer, friendly service, full of locals, and pleasant surroundings, nothing fancy, that'll do nicely thanks.

The food is not ok ande the service is superb. I had swordfish and it was a little to dry. The elder servant are more generous then the young ones and give you more attention.

Friendly service, family style restaurant, sound of sea and waves give good natural music. Tasty, fresh and well prepared seafood, pasta, fish and octopus dishes. They have pizza available also. Good place to enjoy relaxing, non fancy but tasty dinner near the sea. Down to earth and good atmosphere.

We lunched here whilst on a tour. The restaurant is located over the road from the sea and there is a little noise from some traffic. Food was very good.

Our host recommended La Laturna as the best restaurant close to the apartment. We went there late the night we first arrived and enjoyed good pizza -- hearty portion. We returned for lunch just before we left and had excellent pasta and salad.
