I had a very good plate of mixed fried fish here. Comprised prawn squid swordfish amongst others for only 9 euro. Very tasty but could have been hotter. Good local fizzy wine as well. Local to main street and worth a visit.

Although the people are really kind, the food is terrible. I have ordered a steak, but the meat was very grossly and tasted like a lemon juice! Couldn’t taste the meat itself. My husband ordered a pasta with seafood but he didn’t like it either....More

Family run restaurant, of the best kind. Not a in extensive menu, which in my opinion is always a good thing. Served and advised by one of the eldest waiters I’ve ever met. The food is absolutely exquisite.

The restaurant has many tables and was very busy in the evening. However, only one waiter was serving all. He was running fast but couldn't cope with the workload that is good for 2-3 people. He was obviously annoyed, and customers had to wait very...More

Whilst I was not looking for gluten free food, the menu did not rely on breads and pasta as there were many fresh veg and fish sides. Many eateries we saw seemed to be aware of gluten free, so I would think they have... More
