This is a fantastic little restaurant with a great view of the harbour. The food is always fantastic. Tonight I tried the spaghetti Libero, the flavours where amazing and the pasta was so fresh. My wife had the linguini chorizo, which was a great little dish with the warming spice from the spicy chorizo. Would highly recommend this place. Great... More

Only visit this restaurant at lunch times but must complement it on the choices available on their menu. There are at least 6 good choices as a starter with varying prices none of which are particularly expensive. Then you have a wide choice of Pizzas /pastas together with slightly more expensive chicken and fish dishes.

The best Calvary I have tasted! You get a 2 course for £9 99 or 3 course for £11 99. The soup with homemade bread is so tasty and deserts are mouthwatering! If you are considering going here than I do suggest you book a table as it's so busy and popular.
