Great food, (especially their fish and seafood dishes) and wonderful service. Our waiter was one of the friendliest ladies we had ever met. Great place, I really recommend it!

Simple menu with fresh fish and seafood. I had the mussels with French fries which was good. I ordered a glass of house wine as I didn't know which one to pick and was pleasantly surprised! The waitress was very friendly. They have a large outside terrace, away from the main road which is nice and quiet. I recommend if... More

We were recommend this restaurant - wish we hadn't bothered. There was only one server.. So it was very slow to be seated. Fish soup was extremely average and tasteless. Starters and mains both came out cold! They bring out bread, which is fine, but with the mains not the starters.. This would have been better to go with the... More

Nice staff and and pretty ok environment. The food wasn't that good, I make it better at home. My meat that was supposed to be rare wasn't... It was well done instead. And mustard as a sauce didn't make it better. Since the prices were a little more than other places nearby I would suggest you to go somewhere else.

Ate so called tasty fish soup, which was actually only buljong, not so tasty at all. Waited 30 nibutes to get anything into table, because the servant was same time receptionist and worked alone. System does not work this way. Poor worker did her best and was kind, but this is still not the way to run a restaurant. And... More

Discover their Croissants! Although I find it challenging to find good croissants outside of France, Boban makes fantastic ones. Yummy! This is part of their buffet breakfast, with a set price ($10) and all you can eat. Fresh fruits, meats, eggs served any style, cakes and of course, the croissants. This is a lovely venue where you can sit in... More

We celebrated my fathers birthday here. The resturant was nice, bur there were no other guest. Bad music. The food was OK. We had the catch of the day, fish. High prices! Good service from the waiter!
