Ate there on 8/9/16 on their terrace, which was very pleasant and quite peaceful. We both had two courses, although they did bring some additional taster dishes between the courses.The fish was very good and the service was excellent. Friendly and attentive staff. Medium priced and good value.

Best seafood starters (antipasti misti) ive had, ever! Service is great and friendly. A tip is to ask the staff for recommendations on what to eat, and i can almost guarantee that you won't be disappointed! If in the area and like fish: GO. If not in the area and like fish: GO, it is worth the drive!

Very nice atmosphere, near the small port. The food is very good but not excellent. I ordered a "fritto di calamari e gambari" as my main dish " fried calamari & shrimp" and I would rate it 6 on 10. Not bad except they should rename this platter just simply " fried calamari" there were only 2 shrimp in my... More

Here the chef knows how to add taste to already beautiful fresh fish. Cod sliced as carpaccio just marinated with a little bit of ginger. Grilled tuna coated with sesame seeds. A whole turbot in potato crust, our best Turbot ever. Shrimps in a gazpacho like sauce. And to finish a plate of tasteful local cheeses. A real treat

Warm and welcoming. My 7 year old was fed immediately and warmly accommodated in the outside garden. The location is slightly removed from the hubbub of the port and benefits from this. The food is freshly made and the service is exemplary. The chocolate soufflé is to die for. Great wine and a wonderful selection of whiskeys.

Wonderful family run restaurant, with a lovely atmosphere. The food was fantastic! Away from the harbour side which makes for a more peaceful experience.

This has to be the place to eat if you like good honest local food taken to the next level. We had a fish for both a starter and as a main. You could not fault it. Throw in a good bottle of local white wine and you have as near to perfection as possible. Well cooked,very tasty and well... More
