I was two weeks ago, On the plate, on lettuce was green caterpillar 3 cm long. The waiter saw and didn't even apologized! For the dish with caterpillar I paid 100% of the price. I don't recommend!

We had a lovely enjoyable evening here, lots of giggles at the rather retro feel, especially on the terrace. Staff were really friendly, freshly grilled fish / meat is the speciality but theres's not much else on the rather dated menu. Desserts were all disappointingly bought in from cart d'or etc. Inside the restaurant looked smarter, but perhaps less fun?!

When we arrived to this restaurant at 9pm the host took us to our table. We were seated outside and after 5 minutes we realised how hot it was and we asked if inside was air conditioned and it was so we went in. When we were seated, we saw that the hygiene and cleanliness was outstanding. The waiters were... More

We visited while on holiday and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Steak Portugese style and chicken kebabs were gorgeous. Our children had fish and chips at 5.50 Euros and their portions were huge. Very good value for freshly cooked, well prepared food. The waiters were slightly grumpy but I think they were wondering why it was so quiet - perhaps everyone... More

Have eaten here once or twice each year for the last 4 years. Always great service and the food is very good. If available the tourist menu is very good value with starter, main dessert and a drink for c.12 euro. Fish dishes are delicious and our 5 year old daughter raves about the spaghetti bolognese. If had one complaint... More
