The restaurant was one of many recommended by our guide. It had a large ad in the local magazine. We walked by one evening - it was very small with 8 tables. All the tables were full and the place looked festive so we made...More

Simple and lovely food. Would go back here in a heart beat. Not over the top. Very reasonable priced too! Service is relaxed and pleasant. Loved it!

Ordinary food. Expensive for what's served. No help from waiters who won't make an effort for tourists but are nice to locals. Go somewhere else.

Litlle restaurant situated in the heart of the town. Nice friendly place with the owners giving great tips and advise on what to eat. To tell the truth no advise needed because all is amazing and home made. The fish is great and all fresh....More
