We had unfortunately a bad experience at this place. Only the spagetti with mussles very tasty. The rest were from freezer ( lasagne).
Great view over the Beach and sea.

This restaurant is located very nicely on the beach, with a view over the ocean. Unfortunately, i find this to be their best feature. When my boyfriend and I arrived there (walking distance from the hotel we were staying at) we were told that there was a waiting list if you didn't have a reservation. Fair enough, we thought, it seemed to be a very busy night. We were told to wait 15 min and take a drink in the bar while waiting. So we did, and it ended up being 30 minutes of wait before we were rushed to a table for two. The atmosphere was very stressed with servers running around like hens in the restaurant. No one really seemed keen on taking our order, and although they passed our table many times, out order was first taken 30 minutes later. We ordered the sword fish and a gamberi pasta (prawn pasta). The menu stated that the seafood was 'if not fresh, frozen' and when we asked it seemed like nothing in fact on the menu was fresh. The man taking our order was pleasant, although stressed out. He recommended the sword fish very highly, even though it was frozen. He seemed like the owner and one of the few who actually spoke English.

Anyway, the food came after 10-15 minutes and the sword fish dish was a piece of fish with cherry tomatoes on top. Nothing with it, no sides. It was quite dry an tasted of fish. Since it was the first time tasting sword fish, we didn't know what to expect, but from other people we've heard that it's supposed to be a 'meaty' fish.

The pasta with prawns was good! The taste was very nice, but it did lack in prawns (there were 3.. And a whole lot of pasta) and they weren't peeled, which I find quite annoying, since they're wasn't a wet wipe or anything for me clean my greasy seafood hands on after peeling them. There were a few hard bits from the prawns' scale in the pasta, which was very unpleasant to chew on, but overall, the dish tasted well. Pasta was al dente (which I quite like!)

A side note: when I went to the bathroom to wash my hands, there were no soap.

Finally, when we were finished and asked for the bill, it took almost 15 minutes to get it. And they took an extra 3€-charge for 'coperto', which a worker there explained to be a charge for using the glasses, cloth etc.
She stated that 'in Italy we do this', but previously we had never come across a fee like that.

Overall, the restaurant was okey, the food was underwhelming, the location was nice but the service was lacking. We probably wouldn't visit this restaurant again.

Restaurant looks little bit shabby from outside. But when you enter it opens up and you can have a great seats with sea view. Excellent good and friendly service. I recommend the mixed fish grill or the meter pizza. Prices int he restaurant are fair too.

Choice this restaurant cause its was close to our hotel.
The service was nothing special, no smile, not rude, just yes and no and no recommendation on nothing.
The food was alright but again nothing special.
We went there because of the good recommendation from trip advisor, but were not impressed.
