“please avoid at all costs”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

If you like pizza, please don't go here. The staff are incredibly unhelpful, and unfriendly. We were left to feel like we'd done something wrong. The pizza was overpriced, overcooked on the bread and undercooked on the vegetables. I had the impression that they wanted to get rid of us, as soon as we'd finished our meals we were presented with the bill, no offer of deserts or more drinks.

“Overpriced frozen food passed off as home made, dirty tables, not worth the money.”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

We went here because everywhere else in the village was full. Alarm bells started ringing when we saw the dirty table cloths and the grease stains on the waitress's jumper. However, we needed food after a long day hiking so we ordered a "mexicana" pizza and a seafood risotto. The pizza was like cardboard and we suspected it was actually just a frozen pepperoni one with an onion shoved on the top. The risotto was mushy and made from the cheapest quality crab sticks with a couple of the hardest and greasiest prawns I've ever tasted on the side. It definitely wasn't worth the 46 euros they charged in total (even after they gave us free drinks when we pointed out the frozen pizza and supermarket risotto), and they even admitted the pizza was frozen when we paid. My advice- buy a Dr Oetker pizza from the local supermarket and save yourself the hassle and the money.
