“Nice restaurant - good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012 via mobile

Very nice location with great view out over the ocean. Good tapas, great calamari although quite a modest portion. We had 3 different types of main; my wife and I had the dish of the day which was fish with a compote of aubergine and sun-dried tomato with a rocket jus - delicious and at only Eur 12.50 each excellent value. My eldest daughter had a very nice plate of squid with roasted potatoes and my two other kids had brochette of chicken with lovely vegetables and salad. Large portions and well cooked/presented. Very popular restaurant that we would heartily recommend.

“Terrible waiter”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2011

We thought the reviews were worth a try. It looked good and the setting was good. Started well although the waiter thought he could bully us as to his way of doing things! We thought the customer was alright but Colin had other ideas. He then told me to wait while he spoke!!! Unfortunately things got worse when we asked him other questions, and he only wanted to give his comment on French of course. He was a definite discredit to the restaurant. The owner afvised he was new. Perhaps things will improve when he leaves?

“Very good food, more upscale than most in the area , and decent service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2010

Sat down for lunch in early July and the restaurant gave a more "ambitious" feel and had an "upscale" menu compared to most of the eateries around it. Service was just ok but the food made up for that; the appetizers, lunch, and dessert were cooked just right with good flavors and spice. With drinks the bill was on the reasonable side given the quality of the food.
