We visited this restaurant at about 16:45 and we received a warm welcome and was offered the lunch menu, which proved good value (particularly as it was happy hour on drinks) and truly satisfying. We too had the lobster piadina along with sweet potato fries which were both delicious and a great twist on your usual lunch.

Two adults had the chef's tasting menu (with wine) and two kids had regular meals. Total USD 300 or 220 Euros. We all really enjoyed what we had. I would have liked some Arctic Char, but the other fish were excellent.

Prime location next to the harbor in a newly renovated building. You feel that this is aimed at tourists as there is a tourist shop adjacent to the restaurant.

Nice food (they grill a whole lamb just outside the restaurant) and setting.

The staff is a little inattentive (never seemed to get their attention) and the wine list is extremely limited but this is a nice place to come for some food after a visit to the harbor!

We stopped in for a coffee and were treated to a beautiful restaurant with wooden tables, dark wood walls, and especially good background music. Just a step from the various tour boats, it's a perfect place to stop for lunch. Very friendly staff
