Very nice atmosphere, relaxed and tucked away from the main road. The service is promp friendly, and responsive. The food came out hit with great presentation and delicious taste. One big plus is the free desert at the end.

We were very pleased by the friendly service and the delicious food: seafood gratin in fresh tomato sauce, superb flavours and fish of the day: bream. Truly amazing dessert offered to us: a delicate rich dark chocolate mousse! And raki!
