“Avoid”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

It is a very nicely located in the pedestrian area called "Cavana", with outdoor tables. These are the only positive things that can be said about this restaurant. I would rank the quality of the food I had from mediocre to bad: the appetizer was a dish of overcooked sea bass with some rucola and a drop of oil, and the fried fish was greasy. But the worst has been the very long wait - we waited an hour for the appetizers. I drank bad jar wine, had no dessert (only coffee) and paid 45 euros.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed December 21, 2011

Rough Guide recommended this. It had a pretty setting on a nice square, with a tempting menu. But the food was just average, somewhat too tourist-oriented. Plus service was slow.

“A nice place to eat -- but not on a budget”
Reviewed October 26, 2011

We had good food and a warm welcome at this restaurant in the old quarter.
There is a snug dining room at the front with lots of wine bottles on display and simple wooden tables and chairs. (The room at the back is not so atmospheric.) The menu has a wide selection of seafood and meat dishes.
It would easily qualify for four stars -- except for the price; lunch for two (two courses, mineral water and a half litre of excellent local wine) plus coffees came to EUR67.
