A nice terrass, professional staff, wonderful Italian food, pricey but still value. Walking from the old town is 15 minutes. A relaxed but elegant atmosphere. Many regular customers.

We then shared a Seabass which was nicely cooked but I was dissapointed when my green salad arrived but wasn't dressed. Given that it isn't a cheap restaurant even if it had been offered on the...

We have enjoyed this quality 'italo-french' restaurant several times; I never wrote a review since the ONLY fault I ever experienced was the timing of the service of everybody at the table at the same time.

Very good quality seafood, and the waiters were very kind as well. We needed to change tables and they offered free champagne for our pain. The seafood entree platter was the size of a main dish. And the seafood pasta was just perfect. Excellent food experience, on very good prices. Warmly recommended.
