Go to Trabuxu. I went to the restaurant specifically, rather than the wine bar. The atmosphere is dark wood with antiques and charm. I was the lone tourist there for lunch. Ordering the grilled tuna I did not expect such a generous quantity of delicious food. As I waited for my tuna, out came marinated butter beans and bread. A huge portion of perfectly grilled tuna,sitting on a vegetable ragout, quickly followed accompanied by, salad, and fried potatoes. Everything, including the wine was outstanding. Portions are far lager than I expected. The bill was not. Great food, great atmosphere, great value.

Quite enjoyable, food served at a very reasonable time & well prepared! The atmosphere reminds me of a typical old bistro in it's glory years. I will definitely go back to try other dishes for sure.

Found this small restaurant, just off the main street, after a recommendation from the owner of the apartment we stayed in. Great welcome from John, what a character. Lots of choice on the menu with some of the fish dishes dependent on what had been caught earlier that day.

Impressed us so much the first time that we returned twice during our eleven day stay.

Particularily enjoyed the smoked salmon and shrimp starter and a sea-bass main course topped with some local rose wine. Also thought the brie and cranberry starter was excellent.
