We tried the octopus and calamari rice dishes. The meals were very tasty and well-priced. Our server was polite, friendly and expedient for our needs.

We have eaten in this restaurant several times. It is a small family run place. Food is good and cheap. It is a plain place but clean and tidy. Ideal for lunch.
