“Great sophisticated seafood and desserts!”
Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

Tried calamari with zucchinis, which was very flight and fritter like. Seafood risotto was also amazing. great ambiance with harbour view and a grown up European clientle. So far favorite place in Porto Stefano and Porto Ercoles area.

“Nice people”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Nice people, good service. Great with children. Fresh fish done simply. Offered a local wine in preference to much more expensive known wines. Great, what Italy should be about.

“Arrogant staff”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

Arrogance at its finest.
1- rude reception
2- sloppy waiters
3- food excellent but no inspiration nor description of the season vegetables
4- took my plate away as soon as i put the fork down, very rude since my partner was still eating.
5- no side dish for my empty shells
6-free internet, used to write this review

Overall, never coming back here again, not worth it.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

Tiny portions and curious attitude made for a disappointing overpriced meal in what is a very attractive setting on the waterfront. The better reviewed places were busy so we tried this one despite the adverse reviews already in. They were right. We were not happy to pay top dollar for what was provided. On the positive side the chips were good and the white wine was cold. The negatives spoiled our meal.

“superb setting and good food”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

You have to make reservations for this restaurant, don't try and just walk in you will be disappointed as they are full most of the time and there is a reason for that.

Good food and nice wines, in a superb location overlooking the harbor.

They are a bit rushed because they want to turn the tables around 3 x a night, so don't let them rush you :-) take your time and enjoy.
