“Gorgeous food, romantic setting, amazing service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2014

I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. The food was delicious without exception, the restaurant setting is stunning (on the beach with lanterns going down to the shore), the service was super helpful and friendly, and the price, although higher than a lot of other restaurants on the island, was worth every penny.

If you like fish, this is definitely the place for you. They serve an array of fresh fish cooked to absolute perfection. Yum.

“Good but I expected more”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2014 via mobile


The place is awesome, we arrived pushed by the reviews and with no other b plans for the dinner: unfortunately there was no place and we waited more than 1 hour and managed to eat obly because a couple met there during the waiting asked us to join their table.
Food is more expensive than the average but it was very good and well shown in a very nice location.
In any case looking the location, the people that want to eat there and the price I expected food even better.
Very kind and nice the owner
