Went in for lunch. Had a 15 min wait for a table and it was worth the wait. Lots of lovely fresh fish dishes on menu. We had the chick peas in bacon and salad to start. Wife had the squid and I had shark in spicy sauce. Everything was lovely. Great wee bar/ restaurant, great prices and good service.... More

We were told of this place by a local guy. We did not book, just turned up. One of the best lunches for a long time. Not one dud item on the menu. Will recommend to any friends or colleagues visiting here. We will visit again before leaving this late belt place.

This is a great restaurant, serving fish and local dishes, along with local wine by the glass. It's tiny so a wait by the bar may be required - I did and enjoyed some camerones and chilled white. The chocos and cherne were outstanding and the friendly service and lively atmosphere made for a lovely lunch.

If you are looking for a simple place to stop in order to eat genuine food for good prices, there you have to be! The restaurant was really cool, a little vintage, but definitely contribute to create a good atmosphere. We ordered a few starters, different types of fish dishes (sea bream, grouper, cuttlefish), water, wine and a dessert. The... More

The rest of the dishes are also amazing. You should try what you feel!!! You can... More
