We only tried this restaurant because Chiccas was unexpectedly closed. A fully booked restaurant, but the kind waiter managed to get us a table. The food was a little above average, but ordinary and nothing special at all.

I had golden bream with shrimp sauce which was also fantastic and perfectly cooked. Lovely cosy restaurant not to be missed and very... More

Our extanded family had the pleasure of eating the fish kebab with monkfish and schrimps, lamb racks and swordfish. Very delicious indeed. Good local groceries and precise cocking. Staff was very friendly and service minded. Only downside in my opinion is the pre fabricated desserts, I know these are popular around here but I am quite certain that the obviously... More

We were recommended this restaurant by the reception staff at our resort but the first evening that we attempted to eat there we found that they were full so we made a reservation for the following evening. We subsequently had a very good meal, so much so that we made a further reservation for later in the same week and... More

Much to our tentative surprise, we were greeted very warmly and immediately ushered to a table. I ordered a chicken dish, while my husband had a vegetable choice. Both were equally satisfying and tasty. The service was generous and relaxed.... More
