We ate here as a family of five on a couple of occasions and thought the staff were very friendly and helpful. The inside is rather dull but we ate outside and found the food excellently priced. This was the favourite restaurant of two of my teenagers and they had the Swordfish and the Sea Bass which was on special that day and both were cooked perfectly. My son had a pizza and it was a much nicer pizza than he had had in the more expensive places!! We would have no hesitation in returning to this restaurant especially if we were wanting a cheaper night!!

Our party of four ate here in September 2013 and some of the negative comments on here strike a chord. The décor is dreary, unwelcoming and rather depressing.

One waitress was smiley and helpful, the other seemed bored and dismissive. On the whole, the food was quite acceptable but the general ambience detracts from the overall enjoyment. Men sitting at the bar next to our table almost had their backsides in our faces!

This could be a nice little restaurant if the management took a few of TripAdvisor comments on board. Until then - look elsewhere in the town.

Basically this is a family canteen type restaurant with aspirations to be better than it is from a food quality and service perspective. The food is wholesome and tasty for the greater part, but not particularly an overwhelming oooomph holiday experience. Meals looked like the constituent parts, rather than the sum of the parts. There are much better/cheaper bookings in town, including Chicca's and O Antonio. On the eating out/value ratio, it is overpriced for an average dining experience, though the staff are nice enough. We didn't eat pizza but it looked cheaper and tasty. Perhaps this is the segment where the overall experience is pitched at.

Very friendly English service.
Good prices.
2 adults and 2 children.
We are inside and found the atmosphere relaxing and informal.
The friendly staff made the kids feel welcome and the food was good.
Sea Bass was the special on the menu and was cooked to perfection. Keenly priced at €9.50, well worth it. However, the rice on the side didn't compliment the dish that well.
I would dine here again.

I always vow never to go back to somewhere that serves worse food than I can cook at home, so I wont be returning here.
The waitress had a voice like an automated phone system, and they tried to convince me that it is normal to serve fish with the scales still on. B*ll*cks, I say.
go elsewhere, there is plenty of choice.
