Visited this restaurant last Friday & had a very enjoyable meal with family. Complimentary bruschetta & baskets of bread while deciding what to order; I had the Insalata Tricolore to start & the Linguine alla Scoglio for mains - both excellent dishes. Couple of glasses of a really nice wine & coffee to finish off. Will be back soon.

Visited for a birthday dinner recently after not having been there for a while - while menu choice was good as was the service the meal was average and certainly not good value - given the price of starters and main courses we were left very underwhelmed - €130 + for two starters and mains (certainly not the most expensive...

Three of the four mains were top... More

Everything about the experience was just fine. Average food, nice staff. A perfectly nice evening but nothing outstanding.

Maybe it was the Xmas season, maybe a busy Friday evening but this didn't work out for us. The little guy's Pollo Valdestana and my Pollo Picasso just were't inspired in any way (my chicken was just tough, dry and tasteless). The dad had hake which he pronounced good and the good lady had Seafood Linguine which she enjoyed so... More
