Stayed at the hotel while visiting St. Fort. After seeing pictures of the menu I had to try! Was not disappointed ... the seafood, especially the first course was a delight. The proprietors did everything to make dinner and staying there wonderful. It is quiet...More

Great view, atmosphere and food. Low pricing but quality food. Would definitely go there again. The only downside is the waiting for service, however service is very friendly, so you may forgive.

The food here is fresh and some very good fish as it is right next to the fishing port. The owners are trying hard to provide entertainment on a regular basis and deserve support for their efforts and quality of service.

Service was slow and somewhat begrudging. If you don't really want customers this is a good way to achieve that aim. The food was poorly presented and poorly cooked. The gambas were dry and over-cooked, the small fish had no oil or salad with it....More
