One of the first restaurants you come across entering the old town this is a tourist trap of note. Very average overprice for what you get food, although not terrible but certainly not great, served by a very surly brusque waiter. Avoid!

Visited for lunch during Easter week. The restaurant was not full, the service was veryt acceptable, and the menu was varied. Both starters and mains were excellent and the local dessert was incredible. Good value for money. Would suggest you make up your own minds.

A place to avoid. good points : localisation, nice terrasse, clean toilette. Bad points : to much waiting with only a third of total capacity taken, unfresh fish with nothing served with (on an island it sound strange), it make the plate very expensive, and services just awfull. Should be closed immediatly!
