This place is ridiculously overpriced and the staff there are very brazen about it. We bought a "whole fish" for 20 euros and it was tiny!! Of course we were also charged for every single on top of this. 4 euros for a side salad...More

We enjoyed our dinner here, but the food was nothing really special. Service was a bit spotty, but that may have been a function of the size of our party. My pasta with seafood was quite good, but my stuffed mussels were not so great....More
