Had the tourist menu 11.50 euros. Excellent food and great service. Even out of season this restaurant was busy. Would certainly go back.

Lovely meal here off the tourist menu. Soup or garlic bread, any pizza or pasta, side salad and glass wine for under £10. Best if all it was really really good. Staff and restaurant nice and welcoming. Total bargain that we can't wait to repeat.
