“wonderful fish dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

It was magnificent. The owners are a family and very friendly. Since our Italian is really bad, they really tried their best to explain the dishes in French and English. We took the menu, which turned out to be a huge meal! The owner advised us a very good yet cheap wine, which is nice that they do not try to sell you the most expensive one. Overall, excellent!

“Great food, very friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2012

We pitched up with out 8 and 11 year old and were treated to the best meal we had on our whole holiday. All the food was beautifully prepared and presented and our host took us through the menu as our Italian was not good. He even went into the kitchen to show us the fish they would cook. I had the fish stew which was a) immense in size; b) totally delicious.

Kids loved their pasta - courgette and salmon, which the host recommended for them.

All in all, excellent and a welcome change from the pizza/pasta monotony,

“Fresh fish and perfect service with a smile.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2011

We really enjoyed choosing the fresh fish before they prepared them for our meal. Great local wines and service with a smile were a real treat. If you're close to Pontassieve, try it out! (Note that this restaurant is close to the train station.)
