A fish lover's paradise! Simple preparation of fresh fish, done in it's natural sauces, or very light chief's touches of lemon, olive oil, olives capers, etc. Very nice wine list. Small and intimate dinning experience with attentive service. Not to be missed.

Great for seafood and some pasta dishes. 2 people 3 courses with wine is €55 each. Very small restaurant but intimate with character and the staff were very friendly. There was an area to eat outside but it was not open the night we visited do assume they open it in high season. No views of the sea as the... More

We had an excellent dinner in this small, family run restaurant. Delicious very fresh fish, we chose daurade cooked in a salt case, expertly filleted at our table. Staff professional but friendly. Would recommend it highly! Reserve a table in advance as there are not many tables and is popular with locals.

We found the restaurant rather lacking in atmosphere but very clean and the owners obliging. We shared a spaghetti starter which was delicious, however the main course of fresh fish had very little taste and wasn't presented particularly well.

Very small restaurant with short menu - the result is great attention to detail and food. They have a basket with the available fresh fish of the day from which you choose your fish and how to have it cooked. Not a cheap eatery but a wonderful place for a nice occasion. It is dog friendly, which is a plus... More

The fish was caught that day and you get to select it. Don't rall the type of fish but it was prepared in a salt crust. I will never forget the exquisite taste of the fish. Perfectly prepared. Expensive but worth it. House wine was very good. Service was excellent. Everyone takes great pride in the restaurant.

The hotel we were staying at recommended this restaurant. It is down an "alleyway" off the main street of town. It is a small place. If you want to go, I would suggest a reservation. The fish is very, very fresh. We had mussels for an appetizer. And shared spaghetti con scampi as our "primi" course. We then shared pagello... More

We had read reviews and decided to go. Very upscale and expensive restaurant. We thought we were ordering one fish encrusted in salt and one Ligurian style. The waitress brought a platter of four fish and asked us to pick out the one we wanted. Like picking a winner In a turtle derby. Anyway we let her pick the best... More

Yes, they bring the fresh fish out for you to select (bream, big eye, etc) and things seem very traditional, which is fun to experience, but the tastes are only so so.
