Nice atmosphere. Seafood is well done. Service is attent and friendly. Portions are over the average. The limoncello and the small ice cream at the end were perfect ending to a romantic evening.

Stumbled upon this place whilst walking along the beach front. It was by far the busiest of all the places that were open so thought it was worth a try. The speciality is definitely fish although other options are available. The prawns in garlic were magnificent to start followed by anchovies for main which again was very nice. My wife... More

We ate dinner, and the food was good. We chose fish, and vegetarian starters - generous portions! This is a formal restaurant right on the sea front.

Fabulous lunch, warming our bones in the great sunshine of the Gold Coast. Warning, the portions here are huge. My wife and I ordered two appetizers, both delicious... Avocado and shrimp salad, and mussels in vinaigrette. I would highly recommend both. And for an entree we split their black rice paella. If you like seafood, this is your dish. Beautiful... More

The starters were ok. As main course I ordered a Dover-sole which was average. My wife ordered "rodaballo" - came half cooked ( raw) complaint was accepted immediately and fish went back to the kitchen, returned however to the table within 4 minutes - burnt. Than the restaurant offered a new "rodaballo" which was good. Of course it took 20... More

Lovely location sitting outside in sun watching the world go by and looking out to sea. We shared plate of mixed fish with salad. Great mixture of fish. Portion size was very big, enough fish for 4. Lovely bottle of rose wine went down a treat.
