Great place to eat and drink excellent products. The food is tasty and very well cooked/prepared. The local red wine was a pleasant discovery, recommended by the staff. I had a very good experience with all the food&wine proposal. The place is quite and the...atmosphere is nice. The staff is professional and friendly, especially Petronella, so kind and skilled!More

We went twice to this restaurant, they provide excellent service, the waiters are helpful and very quick! The food is amazing, the many is varied enough, the paellas are particularly great. All seafood is fresh and cooked with a lot of taste. I look forward...to returning back!More

A very nice place, quiet and peaceful. We had a very good paella for two with seafood and chorizo. Very tasty. The personnel polite and friendly, good service. A few annoying moskitoes but a nice place to go!

I had lunch here a few days ago with my family. The place was almost full when we arrived and we were pretty lucky to get a table, actually the last remaining one so you definitely need a reservation. The menu was rather small and...the prices seemed a bit high. Anyway, I had the Fish and Seafood soup (45 lei) and it was pretty good, large portion which for sure can be shared, could be enough for two or maybe even 3 people. The taste was nothing spectacular though, tasted like a tomato soup with a little fish flavour, was not bad though and was served with a nice toasted bread, served in a paper bag. Seafood and fish pieces was fine though found one or two pieces of vongole that had sand in it, guess it slipped the cook. Overall, not a bad dish, I definitely recommend you try this one, expecially since it can can shared and price is reasonable. I tasted also the Spaghetti Scoglio that my wife had but I can't say it's worth the high prices. The taste was not bad but it had almost no sauce though it might have been intended like that, pasta was definitely not homemade and was not even Barilla though it was properly cooked. We ordered also dessert from thr start and asked for Lava Cake but after almost 3 hours of waiting for it we gave up on it and asked for the check. Overall, we had a pretty poor experience mostly because of the incredible slow service that I believe forgot our dessert order even after we reminded them, the waitress seemed very distracted and confused, too bad as the food was not bad but the slow service ruined the evening, almost 3 hours for a one course meal is too much and was definitely expecting better from the number one Restaurant in the city, my rating 2.3 / 5 stars.More

Good afternoon, we can only apologize for the incident, it was after a 3 weeks vacation and a restaurants full of guests, and I think she was overwhelmed. :( We are sorry for this inconvenient!

We arrived around 17.30 so the restaurant was quite empty. The waitress was very kind and helpful and the food was excellent. A bit expensive - but it is seafood and the sea is very far away :)

We have waited 40 min for our food. I really don’t know why it has good reviews... the food was ok but nothing special.
