We sat down because of the nice looking area there and had dinner. The starters were more like bad jokes, that food. Had capesante and a marinated salmon. Both starters were more than 13€ but the quality was terrible. Wrong sides, cold seafood. The same with the main course. Had the grilled fish plattern. Everything was served cold and tasted like old fat. No excuse by the waiter after we claimed. For 2 starters and 1 main course we paid more than 60€. Way overpriced + low end quality = tourist trap!!! Save your money and skip this restaurant!

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.

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.

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.
