This is clearly a German restaurant and for years we steered clear until it was recommended as the Best Fish Restaurant on the Island. We then had to go. We had been too xenophobic! He was right. The German owner is so welcoming, although his wife tends to avoid non-Germans. They start by handing out menus but that is largely... More

Popped in on our first night, shown what fish were available and recommended. The restaurant and bar were very quiet, but had a very welcoming atmosphere. Husband and I both selected different fish from the menu, which we were not dissapointed with. We both enjoyed the feel of the restaurant so returned once again, chosing different fish which was also... More

Had dinner here one evening. We both had mixed fish and this was excellent. A shared salad as a starter was plenty. The staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. Did seem to be predominantly German but then to be expected as German ownership. Price of food and drinks were very reasonable. We would definitely visit again and would certainly recommend... More

We tried this restaurant as it was across the road from our hotel. Staff were not very friendly but we found that in every restaurant in Santa Maria. As it's on the outside of town, it doesn't get alot of customers and for that reason, the place had no atmosphere. They had a large fish menu which was tasty at... More

Ate here the first night of our stay as just across the road from our hotel. The waitress was very helpful and efficient and explained which fish were available. There was quite a few from which to choose. We had tuna and dorada and there was good portions of each. It was very quiet and maybe because it is on... More

This restaurant is run by German people and has been established for some years. The food is ok but there is very little atmosphere unless you're watching German football in the bar. Don't forget they don't take cards so take enough cash to avoid embarrassment.

As said, most of the menu was unavailable, so we had tuna carpaccio - very good at only €5 - grilled prawns - good and decent portion for €15 - and deep fried calamari - OK, smallish portion for €15. Not great for a restaurant which is meant to be all about seafood.

We visited here as numerous people had spoken about it. The choice of fresh fish is very good and it is very well priced. The owners and staff are very friendly and it is definitely worth a visit.
