No-nonsense place with excellent food. The interior is not fancy, but the place has an authentic feel and the food is great. We both got a huge portion of mussels, with fresh fries and homemade mayonnaise. Half a liter of San Pellegrino for 3,20 euros.

This restaurant probably the best mussels I have ever eaten, perfect size and texture. There is a selection of sauces I had the original marinere Delicious

This place is a hidden gem, with local charm and clientele. Ok it's paper table cloths but so what I came for fresh mussels, cooked with wine cream & garlic though they offer about 10 ways, and they were honestly the best I've ever had....More

VERY poor choice on the menu. The wine is very expensive (paid more than 35 €) for an ordinary Chilean Chardonnay. I'm allergic to mussels, I ordered fried fish which was overcooked and greasy. Dam enjoyed the mussels though. Try to go there after lunch...More
