“Distinctly Average”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

After having a reasonable experience here last year, we looked forward to visiting again this year, and took friends along. We were very disappointed with the quality of the food and the service wasn't that great. A free shot of madeira wine and a winning smile can't make up for poor quality food. There are far better restaurants within easy striking distance of this distinctly average 'restaurant'. Don't spend your hard earned money here.

“Nice terrace but not good food”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Arrived and sat at a nice table on the terrace. Went downhill from there on though. Waiter taking the order was curt and grumpy. Ordered sardines which were ok and steak which wasn't bad but both were served with soggy, watery vegetables, despite us asking for no vegetables with the steak. Portions weren't large either. Not worth the price.

“Relaxed, friendly atmosphere with fantastic food”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

We loved "Summertime", returning 3 times in a week. The staff were very friendly and attentive, the food was not only really good, but our 11 year old son had no problems choosing different things he liked each time. A special mention to Claudio who helped make it a very enjoyable experience

“Just bad all the way round.”
Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

Save your money. Many nice places to sit, but the food in this place is not worth the price. We have travelled many places in the world, and this ranks as one of the worst place we have eaten at.

“Try the Chicken Skewers!”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

The food was great and the staff very friendly. I ordered the chicken skewers and was surprised to get 4 bits of chicken hanging on a skwer rather than just lumps of meat
