We have visited Hobo's several times during our stay. Food cooked in the evenings seemed to be more qualitative that the one served around lunch. Very good salads, fried fish, sweet courses, but disappointing seafood pizza. Food is served both inside and outside - in a cozy garden by the church.

When we first looked at the menu outside the restaurant one of the waiters told us we should book a table if wanted to come back for dinner later as it would get very crowdy. We thought that was the typical commercial attitude and just kept on walking. When we came back around 7:30, the place was still completely empty... More

Perfect location just off of the main street. We arrived just before officially being open that particular evening but the waiter could not have been more helpful. Until he was ready he gave us some free bread with our drinks while we perused the menu. I asked what the catch of the day was, he returned with a basket off... More

It was terrible, they treated us completely differently from the Italian guests. We got no bread, in two hours they only took our order and never checked on us, even went as far as to offer the couple next to us a drink on the house when an alarm kept going off next to the restaurant. We wouldn't be upset... More

The food that did turn up was good but the waiter missed one of the party at the table and then picked an argument. I have never experienced such rude arrogant response to a bad customer experience that I can remember. I would never ever return on the basis I would have such a bad experience again AWFUL !!

The green salad was taken very literlay, it was only lettuce, nothing more. But what do you expect for three euros! Pesto sauce on the penne was very good as... More

I went here for lunch with a friend of mine. the waiter was very rude and not helpful at all when we asked informations about the dishes. Then we ordered pasta with seafood. I can say that was the worst seafood pasta that I ever had: absolutely tasteless....
