We (2 adults and 2 kids) arrived without booking (but would recommend booking as a lot of people after us had to make a U-turn) and received the table we wanted, outside, overlooking the turqoise Adriatic. The kids loved the views and the fresh fish and seafood acquaria. And we all loved the food! Mussels antipasti with raw fish carpaccio... More

The food was very good, we ate there with friends on a stormy evening and watched the waves, much like being on a boat. We had the seafood antipasti which was very good and gave everyone a chance to sample a wide variety of seafood. For our main we had seafood risotto, which was the best we have had in... More

Lovely seafront location with waves lapping close to the tables. Were first to sit down for lunch, and restaurant terrace filled quickly with locals (who got served 30 mins sooner), but worth the wait for a delicious plate of Fritto Misto.

This restaurant is the marriage of old tradition, fresh food and top class service. It has been recommended to us by a local and we were delighted. To not miss!

We booked a table which is recommended as this popular restaurant was full very quickly and they were constantly turning diners away. The atmosphere is very lively and the menu is of good quality fresh fish. They even have a pool where you can chose the fish you want. All the food that came from the kitchen looked delicious. If...

Visited this lovely looking restaurant that was suggested by friends. It was lovely food but the service was poor and food delivered in scattered and disjointed flow. Value for money was good too but disappointed slightly by the service for such a smart place!

This is one of several newer restaurants at the far end of Via Enoi del Mare (see also Il Punto and Rotondo). Mainly seafood here - fresh and on display. Simple, no frills - and all the better for it. Service is good - attentive. And the setting is very enjoyable.
