“Friendly service with good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

the staff in this restaurant are young women who are always cheerful and smiling. The food was very good indeed, if you are really adventurous I recommend the local shellfish delicacy, Cracas (in fact cooked rock barnacles) served with an armamentarium of devices to extract the dellicious flesh. You will not be disappointed.

“A restaurant without food (except spaghetti)”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

Oh dear..... We used Trip advisor recommendations to search out this restaurant. It took a lengthy period of time to attract the attention of staff, who appeared determined to blank potential customers. Eventually, having approached a waiter to enquire if there were any tables, we were advised, in unapologetic terms, that there was actually no food! (Which was novel, given the universally accepted definition of a restaurant). The surly waiter stated that there was 'no fish, no beef, no pork, no chicken'. When we asked what was on the menu he said 'spaghetti'. Needless to say, we kept walking....We suggest you do the same.

Had a lot of Tuna on the menu, but when I came to order it, no tuna available. Happened twice. The atmosphere was good and the staff friendly
