Family of 4 had lunch here. Portions were big (kids couldn't finish them!) and perfectly tasty. Reasonably priced and free portion of watermelon after meal. Waiter was lovely - very friendly and happy to help the kids have lots of cocktail paraphenalia in their fanta!

Excellent restaurant. The staff are Albanians and the nicest people. Menu great and inexpensive. Great laugh with "Freedom" (never did find his real name: Freedom cos we're Scots). Will be back.

We had lunch there. Friendly staff, good food, but nothing special. The fish was too greasy. We got melon for free.

We ate dinner here once during our stay and it was very Hit or Miss. Three of us really liked our meals and three were very disappointed.

It's usually opened till late, but I don't know in April, as it's still low season...By the way there's a take away not far from there where you can take some food, if you cannot get it there.
