“Great location good value food”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

We ate here tonight. Great location. Food pretty much the same as every where else but tasty, we'll presented and good value. Would recommend the Grillo white wine really good Sicilian. Waiters very efficient but may be speeding you up a bit more than you want in order to free up your table for the next punters. However were perfectly happy when we slowed them down a bit.

“Great Sicilian Food”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

What a lovely restaurant, set on the sea front, offering wonderful Sicilian food. You can't go wrong here. Everything is well cooked, well presented, fresh and reasonably priced. The staff offer a very quick service which is most impressive considering the large number of tables both inside and outside this restaurant. Would definitely recommend.

“Sunset Pleasure”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

You would not pick this restaurant out in a crowd as it appears, at first glance, to be yet another ordinary tourist establishment. Don't be put off! It has inside and outside seating and offers the opportunity of seeing fabulous sunsets on the sea front. A great maître D who is welcoming and controls the waiting staff with humour and professionalism which is appreciated by clients. A very good place to take children who are sympathetically treated.

The restaurant offers excellent value for money and provides a wide choice of dishes some of which are local to the District. Fresh fish is offered as are interesting pasta dishes and an extensive range of pizzas. Try the Sicilian wines which are surprisingly good.

It is a restaurant that I would certainly wish to return as a pair or with the family. However be patient as there can be delays in service

“Really great food at very reasonable prices”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

This restaurant has everything you could ask for. It looks like the kind of place which could be a tourist trap but it was actually really clean and welcoming. It was extremely busy on the evening we were there but we were immediately seated as requested just inside the restaurant. There are no windows so it was nice to be separated from all the crowds strolling past and just inside the air conditioned area! The food is just the sort of thing that most families would want on holiday - but it all done so well. I ordered a prawn cocktail on a whim and it was absolutely packed with prawns and even had a sprinkling of caviar on top! The pizzas looked absolutely authentic and delicious. I had cous cous with fish which was great - with extra fish stock/sauce served in a separate jug. I recognised the owner from the previous night when he was dining in the same restaurant as us - he acknowledged this and came over to compare notes. He also send us over a glass of dessert wine on the house which was a nice touch.
