We had dinner here on our second night and we wished we went somewhere else. We were really wanting calamari and it was on the menu but it's not what they serve. Also, something to note, not every meal you order will have the same amount of food. Others ordered one thing, fried, and ours was grilled, but it was... More

We loved our visit. Staff was great, even though it was extremely busy. The oysters were so fresh and amazing. Owner even helped us find somewhere to watch football.

We tried to have lunch and the town it was not extremely crowded... we waited for 20 minutes with an unacceptable lack of courtesy of the waitress and we escaped ... the food was apparently normal with high price.

Dear Sawine, we are really sorry to hear that our restaurant did not meet your expectations. We apologize for the lack of courtesy you experienced however judging our food and our price without even sitting down or eating is ridiculous. It seems like you were frustrated with the poor service you received which is understandable however coming here to give... More

I was amazed by the quality of the food, definitely one of the best places for sea food I have been to.

They want to make it fancy but this address is a real tourist catcher. Food isn't bad but the bill is. You can find better

Slightly rude staff, though given it's busy, possibly slightly stressed staff who are unsure what they're doing? Long wait for average quality food. Staff seemed to become happier as the evening progressed! Would not hurry back…

The atmosphere in this restaurant is not nice at all and the staff is pretty rude.We all had spaghetti Bolognese - the portions were very small. The spaghetti were very very al dente and there were nearly no meat in the sauce.

Found this place because I walked by during the afternoon and saw the chef making fresh pasta through an open window to the kitchen. Then later that night returning from dinner elsewhere with my wife we saw them cooking all the meals for the dinner guests that evening. Fabulous fresh seafood on ice at the prep stations and dazzling activity... More

We had dinner there on April 9th. The service was great. The food was amazing (mixed seafood appetizer that consisted of about 4-5 cold and then 4-5 hot samplers, a prosciutto plate, 2 seafood ravioli and 2 seafood risotto, wine, and desserts). The overall bill came in at 130 euros for the four of us, and the whole experience was... More

Lunch at this restaurant was really fun. We had wonderful fresh fish, a great salad and terrific local wine. Very nice staff. A leisurely meal watching the people go by and just enjoying the atmosphere of being in the city, especially since the area was quite quiet for being in a major tourist area.
