“Good Fish, slightly overpriced”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

Restaurant looked fairly busy so we sat on the pavement, good selection of starters and main courses. We had a mixed selection of local cheese and iberico ham (15€).

My wife chose the hake (14€) and I chose a mixed grill of fish and shellfish (25€) with a bottle of house red wine (10€). Starter was excellent, wine as in all the restaurants was very good, the hake was fresh and beautifully cooked and presented,
The owner, who was mildly over-attentive, de-boned my sole and although (I thought) my mixed fish/shellfish grill was expensive it was very tasty.
Vat was not included in the headline prices, which was again mildly irritating. But good food, nice restaurant, slightly overpriced (Total 72€)

“Very welcoming, good food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2011

My husband, 3 young children and I eat here in August. The restaurant is only a short distance off the main marina-facing road. The food was good, though the menu a bit limited. The staff were very welcoming to the children.
