We visited on a chilly April evening in Easter week. The setting is very attractive and the small inside dining room looks and feels the part for an atmospheric seafood restaurant: light blues and whites, tiles, a full view into the kitchen, and neat little table cloths on old pine tables.
The food we had was generally above average. The best course was probably a vegetarian antipasto of Aubergine soaked (I think) in local honey wrapped around pieces of soft cheese. The seafood was decently prepared: octopus salad very fresh and not chewy, grouper in a tomato broth a little overcooked but tasty, and sardine pasta delightfully sardiney and crunchy.
The prices are simply excessive though. At the time 16-18 Euros for each course seemed a little steep but palatable just about, but the bill convinced us the owners are taking the mickey. A plain little pasta pomadoro for our 6 year old son came in at 16 Euros, glasses of average house wine were 6 each, there was of course the coperto (another 6). Then we ate the following lunchtime at the wonderful U Dammusu in Chiaramonte Gulfi (see review) for half the price and this gave us the perspective we needed.
This restaurant potentially has a lot going for it. If it cuts prices by roughly half it might start to see its Tripadviser rating recovering.
