“Where did these good reports come from”
Reviewed November 22, 2011

We ate lunch on 21st Nov on the strength of the excellent reports in Trip Advisor. We ordered two pizzas which were good not difficult to do and two chicken cacciatori which were dreadful. It took 45 mins for the food to arrive despite the restaurant was not busy. We also ordered a bottle of wine which was overpriced. The chicken was cut into small strips and was floating in a grey thin sauce with chopped vegetables. This nice Italian dish should be served in a tomato based sauce. The dish served was bland and tasteless I left most of it. My son in law who was hungry ate it but did not enjoy it.There was no potato supplied even although the menu stated provided with all main courses. I complained to who maybe was the owner all he said was did you not like it ? did you not eat it ? That was it. He never came near during the time we were eating or asked "is everything OK". This restaurant is grossly over rated. Very slow service and poor food.
If you go there stick to pizza only.

“Italian ambience with beautiful food prepared by Michael & served by his wife.”
Reviewed March 28, 2011

My wife and I visited this lovely restaurant for the first time on February 28th not knowing what to expect. We had a drink there at lunchtime & were greeted by Michael and his pleasant attitude persuaded us to go for dinner that evening.Michaels wife was very attentive & we settled back & listened to the classical Italian music.
The restaurant is quite small & quiet but the food is excellent. The filet steak in pepper sauce or plain is superb.
We visited a second time at lunchtime & again in the evening and once again the food was of the highest quality and taste.( lunchtime snacks are also very attractive & good value).
Although we prefer our restaurants to be a little more lively we cannot fault the food & presentation by Michael and his wife.

“Restaurant D.J Cocktail Art Bistrot "Carpe diem"”
Reviewed December 19, 2009

Restaurant D.J. Cocktail Art Bistrot

Amongst the most outstanding establishments in one of most carateristique part of the islands here brushstrokes of elegance dominate. The success of this "ristorante & Lounge Bar" is justified with weighty arguments: on one point two refined proprietors coinciding (admirable PRs) cooks who keep up their skills when the rhythmn accelerates, vocational waiting staff, an internationally awarded cocktailer.

There are two menus: one is a wide and substantial selection of Italian dishes with a mixture of rich starters and pasta, fish and meat main courses. The other VIP menu, simple, moderately creative with wonderful Mediterranean dishes.
