We went to this restaurant based on the Tripadvisor recommendations. Must say it was correct. A very small and cosy place. Not the bright light restaurant you see a lot here. Very unusual decoration, made of the families collection of almost everything.
Food was excellent, came cooked in a roof tile and served at the table. We will go back for sure.

We ordered the wild boar on roof tile and a fish dish. Both were amazing. The shrimp that came with the wild boar was so sweet that I sucked on the shell to get the last bit of sweetness. The service was friendly. It's an old married couple cooking in the tiny open kitchen and their son is the waiter. They prepare everything themselves and so everything is very fresh. Well worth the cab ride to this residential area. They were even nice enough to call us a cab back to our hotel. The food is also a great value in a great atmosphere.... also ENGLISH friendly!

Had the calamari shrimps grilled on roof tile, which was served somewhat cold but the taste was great.
Service was the biggest disappointment, unfriendly and no attention.
Great atmosphere, tiny place and weird decoration.
I recommend to try out once but would not return.

Couldn't have hoped for a better find!
the atmosphere first struck us and we just felt like we were thrown in a time warp (literally with the collectin of watches and clocks on the wall).
The service was family-like and the food to die for - we had the seafood platter and were in heaven.

A rare find and highly recommended!
