I wasn't sure what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant looks modern, lively and the dishes we had were outstanding. The shrimp croquettes were probably the best I've ever had and the seafood platter was simply magnificent!

The restaurant is quite small with quite too many tables. It gets very noisy so do not plan to go there for a romantic dinner. Service is inattentive and almost unfriendly. The menu is traditional. The food is in general is quite blunt and not...More

Dropped by for dinner one busy Saturday night. Managed to get a table okay. Nice atmosphere (although some people seemed a bit stuffy / pretentious), service was good and so was the food we ordered. Was about €150 for 2 with a bottle of wine...More

Nothing really to add to my title. I cannot say it was "THE MOST DELICIOUS" food I've ever had (though definitely not bad), but the correctness and professionalism of the waiter added plus 1 star :) I am coming back, for sure:)

The menu “à la carte” is very complete. We highly recommend the lobster or the catch of the day. Lunch menu also available during the week. There you will love the food and the terrace under the sun. Reservation recommended. Price is correct
