Nice restaurant with great seafood. Go there if you want to eat local seafood. All stuff is friendly and nice. Don´t go there if you are not willing to pay 5 Euro for Seafood or expect pub food.

Food was just excellent. Mussels were plump and garlicky, a huge portion. Pasta with truffles was creamy, rich, and filling (despite it being listed as an appetizer, it's easily an entree). Grilled vegetables were top notch. Decor was fantastic. Service was impeccable. Our waiter was...More
