“Beware of the fresh fish proposal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

We had dinner on the lovely terras in the summer holidays at this restaurant. We ordered a variety of lovely starters such as fresh mussels and calamar. All main dishes were well prepared and very tasty and included cod filet, duck, scallops and sea bass. However, the waitress started by offering us a fine selection of the catch of the day which initially looked very tempting. It was only after asking a few questions that we understood that she was attempting to make us order a 2 Kg fresh fish for sharing between 2 or 3 people at a cost of nearly 200 EUR. We would not have appreciated our meal at such high cost and it felt a bit like a tourist trap to us. After we had changed our mind about the catch of the day and ordered from the a la carte menu, we enjoyed our meal and the waitress remained very professional, albeit a bit disappointed about our change of mind. Overall we would rate this restaurant as good but expensive. We recommend asking for the price of the catch of the day in order to avoid any surprises.

We went twice to this fantastic restaurant.

Situation: In front of Portovecchio harbor. Just in front of all beautiful yachts.

“Just excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

Had dinner there in July 2012. The terrace is beautiful, right in the port. The waitress who welcomed us was very nice. We were shown the fish that was caught that morning. We could hardly decided what to eat as the choice of food was so tempting. The food was exceptional! I would love to go back!

“Very poor”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2009

Had dinner with 2 young families in this restaurant, having eaten there once before a year earlier.

This time, it was very stressful. Seated at back of restaurant even though the table we asked for was never occupied. Children fed before adults starters came. Took 2 hours to have 2 courses. A fish between 2 people was €100. Staff were arrogant. Really don't recommend. The food is fine but there are many many better place.
