“Quality Eating”
Reviewed September 13, 2011

This small restaurant is a revelation. The owner is a fisherman and there are fresh fish on the menu every night. Having eaten there on a number of occasions I have never been disappointed. On last visit I had scallops, cooked Italian-style, with sauce of mussels and clams. Excellent. My spouse had fresh turbot, which again was excellent.
The wine list is most comprehensive and amazing for such a small restaurant. We had an Albarino from Galicia which is not available in many restaurants even those serving seafood. This restaurant is not cheap but it does have quality.
