"A disgusting food experience" best describes this restaurant. I was there on New Year's Eve with a group of 12 friends. Without any exaggeration, I do not think that I ever had such bad food in my entire life. Nothing was eatable. Here is how...More

Everything was bad, the service awful, the food cold, waitress hardly did say hello. No suggestions for kids .... If this is the level they can obtain, they better look for a new job. Such a bad experience never again

Second time here. Not bad, fast service, honest food not too expensive. We came at 7.30 PM and had a nice quiet table. Fish soup as a starter (ok at the local market you can get better ones), moules as head dish, also not bad....More

My daughter's cannelloni were burned, French fries fat below average, mussels very small (ok, we're out of season). The place itself is average as well.
