Having moved into the area recently, we have been delighted to find such a superb restaurant. The food is good, particularly the home made soups and desserts. The service warm and friendly and the view sensational. Better than anything, and despite the urgings of other reviewers on this site, it has retained its character. To modernise it would be to rip the soul out of the place. This brave individuality is all too lacking in the cold interiors and bad accoustics of many modernised restaurants Don't change a thing!

We were a party of almost 40 and they coped very well. The food was good and served with a smile. Glasses were well attended and we went home very contented. The position on the beach contributes much to the atmosphere. We were not paying the bill so I cannot comment on value for money, but I would go back, partly as there is not much other choice in the immediate area.

Thank Pittville

Food is good and well cooked but the restaurant is looking a bit tired. Lovely service. Pricey for what it is.

I had a fly in my water which was meant to be fresh, they were also flying around, I herd the waiter call the barman a c#### under his breath, the decore was also very dated, food was meant to be italian but only one pasta dish on the menu , i had chicken which had a strange taste and have had the same dish lots of times at different resturaunts and it didnt taste like that, the puddings on the trolly cant have been very fresh with flys flying around them on the trolleys, I love italian food and have travelled to italy so know the food this was a let down.
