Please don't go to this place! The quality is really bad and you can find so many better and cheap restaurants! I asked for prawns and my partner asked for shrimps. Both of them had more or less the same taste, which was mostly nothing, as they were completely bland! And even worst, they didn't remove the poo, which was... More

We ate here with a couple of people we met from Denmark, the service was comical as almost everything we asked for got a reply of "finished" (which meant they had run out. This included chicken breast, chicken legs, draught beer and a fish dish. The steak one of the Danish had got sent back as it was too tough... More

Service was fast. Food was good, but the prices of food and drink were kind of high compared to other places nearby.

Last year we had the best quality meals here, so we went back. The prices had soared and our meal was a disaster. Frozen lobster, hardly anything to eat, a few chips and a little lettuce. We told the owner and he offered a free meal in the evening which we refused. But we will never go back.

We came here during News years time drawn by the cool music. Arriving after 9pm we managed to get a table near the kitchen but had a good overall view of the small band. The fresh seafood was tastey but the side dishes were ok. The service was good and managed to get a free drinks for our patience since... More

We both had different types of fish and neither of us were impressed. They did have the best prepared rice though and there was some live music.. We didn't return.

we came here last night hoping to have a decent meal on our holiday as the food in the hotel is truly awful. After trying 2 of the popular restaurants on tripadvisor which were both full the taxi driver dropped us here. The menu is basic and the restaurant is basic but has great music. The food arrived quickly and... More

The resturant is set back from the main street and is basically tables in a side street. As per the title it is basic but the food was good, we all had fish dishes washed down with wine and beer. The service was good and the waitresses were entertaining. They have 2 guitarists playing which was enjoyable. I note there... More
