The views of the harbor from the restaurant are fabulous. The service was nice enough, but a bit slow (maybe standard for the area?). Our starters were good as was the wine. My husband had the stuffed squid which had nice flavor but wasn't the best meal ever. Mine... was awful. Thin slices of "swordfish" that were stuffed with a sticky, unflavorful, orange goo and then was rolled in dry breadcrumbs. It was supposed to be a raisin/pine nut, something or other filling that sounded good.... but very much was not. I hardly ate any of it and it was not a cheap meal. Views: top notch, but we wouldn't return based on the food sadly.

It is a bit pricy compared to others but if you have a special night it's worth it. The fresh catches are fantastic!

I went to this restaurant as I'm very fan of restaurants with good views. I got there and asked for table for one. The hostess called to the restaurant so see if there was availability (reception is downstairs and the restaurant upstairs) and she told me that I should take the lift. When I got upstairs I found that the restaurant was almost empty, so I didn't understand that call?
Anyways, I sat down, given the menu and they promptly came to take order. I order beef carpaccio to start with, followed by tuna steak with crunch of pistachio and a glass of white wine. They both were very nice, although nothing outstanding. The service was great although they cleared the plates very promptly. I don't like when staff do that as it seems they are rushing you. I like to be given 2-3 minutes after I finish. Overall a good experience and food with a nice view.

The restaurant is in a perfect setting and very tastefully decorated. The menu had many choices. I had tuna that had a pistachio crust and it was the best tuna I have ever eaten. It melted in the mouth. It was a quiet and romantic place and the staff were all friendly and professional.

After looking forward to eating here all day we were met by an extremely rude manager / owner Luca and we had to walk out without eating at all.

This is a service industry and food should be about warmth and love and especially in a half empty restaurant, a bit more.

We are now being served by fabulous staff at Rafael at the waterfront.
