Most menu items were not available, those that were were underwhelming: 8 € for five slices of undercooked potato and the smallest swordfish ("penknife fish") ever seen. Overcooked fish dumped on the table with no attempt to prepare the fish for eating - compares very,...More

This place is one of our favourites. The chef custom makes sea food pasta according to your tastes and suggests innovative and traditional dishes. It's a feel like home restaurant with an amazing cliff top location. Very cozy and romantic, also excellent for private dinners.More
