I believe this to be a family business (but I am not certain). There's a few comments on here regarding the service, and while it was friendly, it was a little slow. There were 3 waitresses, one of which I believe to be the owner. It seemed like she wanted to do everything, leaving the other two carrying food and... More

We thought we were lucky in having a table but noticed that the table was available because it was tooooo hot at that corner...

Well cooked fresh fish for 17,50 euro is well worth it. The place is popular so could be a good idea to book in advance.

We have eaten here regularly over he past 15 years. Consistently excellent food, well presented, with welcoming very pleasant staff. Their fish dishes are always fresh from the local markets and the steak is also great. A comprehensive wine list for a variety of pockets! Highly recommended.
