I had seen the restaurant from the Promenade, the lobster painting on the front of the buidling and the number of people eating had drawn my attention to it. The menu looked varied and fresh fish was exhibited outside in a cold display cabinet. As we approached a very eager waiter encouraged us to look at the menu and take... More

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant on a recommendation and were quite disappointed. We were served a wine that they said was dry but was actually overly sweet. We had bruschetta as a starter, which was incredibly soggy and bland. I had risotto for a main, which was delicious. My boyfriend had prawns, which were lovely but the accompanying... More

Have eaten here twice this week and we are not disappointed. Lovely sea food, meat dishes looked and smelt amazing. Catering for my gluten free diet posed no problem. Staff were knowledgeable which gives me confidence. They even had gf bread rolls. Today we had large prawns followed by a traditional dish of fish which was delicious. Highly recommended.

We ordered the fish platter for two - the waiter was very keen showing us the fresh fish from the fridge at the front on a platter. Cost €31.50 - not sure how that compares but there was plenty of fish with sea bream, scabbard and red snapper served with the inevitable boiled potatoes and vegetables. May be us getting... More

We had dinner here on a Wednesday night in April and it was surprisingly quiet even though it is located close to the cable car in the old town. People may have been put off by the lack of a price list (you choose from a board) which is a shame because it is a very good fish restaurant and... More

We visit the island twice a year and have pasted this restaurant many times and said we must try it as the fish looks really good, this time we did and we weren't disappointed. We had mixed seafood platter and it was great, it was all beautifully fresh and cooked perfectly! Nice atmosphere in the restaurant and the staff are... More
