It's a tourist trap (in fact the whole village is), and we fell for it. On the plus side, the terrace is pleasant and the Caesar salad was huge. But what on earth is that nonsense about cooking at your table on a temporarily hot piece of metal all about? A gimmick, and a waste of time, that's what. And... More

This is not favourite sort of food (I like somebody else to do the cooking) but this place impressed me favourably. Either we were lucky or they have been reading these reviews because I was very impressed by the staff. Normally in big tourist places they are off-hand because they know they'll never see you again. Not here. We were... More
