It wasn't that easy to find but well worth the effort. Lovely rustic setting overlooking the small bay. Friendly service and good food at a sensible price. Good sauces, great fish, I had the veal escalope and nice local wine recommendation as well.

The place to go for solid but not spectacular food,offering a superb view and well away from the hordes on the hill. We arrived and departed by Chairlift and spent less than 80 euros including a bottle of wine.

Wonderful food and lovely staff. Nice scenery. You might need to book a table, 'cause it's kind of small place and very popular. White prawns in white wine sauce were excellent!
