I can't speak for the people who have complained about the food below, as we found our lunch to be delicious. And the atmosphere was second to none, as the sea breezes blew in on a cloudless, warm day. My lunch included spaghetti with mussels,...More

Interesting Menu. I had the baked fish which was very fresh. The potatoes on the side were my favorite part of the meal. The appetizers were good as well.

What a total delight to find Le Bocche at the end of the waterside walkway right below the ancient church. Fantastic location right by the water - fabulously fresh fish, chilled rose wine, creamy affogato - was a great escape for lunch whilst being cooled...More

We were slightly put off by some of the reviews but we're regular boating visitors and thought we should try it out. Undoubtedly the best location here, right on the channel into the port and village but the food was excellent as was the service....More
