The restaurant is really cosy. The food was ok, but I believe that the service could have been better

Great restaurant. We come often as we live in the neighborhood. Worth it every time with really fresh fish. Try grilled shrimps and mussels.

This place was recommended by friends, and we had a very good meal there with good fish dishes. The highlight was a cuttlefish rice dish cooked in its own ink - tender cuttlefish, so tasty.
