Delicious, authentic no gimmicks food. Friendly and helpful service - good advice on wine choice. Superb fish of the day ( stonefish) and fillet steak. Even jelly and chocolate mousse choices for dessert.

Having read previous reviews I totally agree that the covert is the best I have ever had. I ordered the shrimp in green pepper sauce and my husband had the octopus. Both were delicious. We will definitely go back.

We had the pasta with chicken and the pasta with shrimp. There was so much cream it was like eating a soup with over cooked spaghetti in it. Waiter looked angry when we ordered.

Nice restaurant, away from the busy centre. Nice dishes, wine was overpriced. Will we go again ? Maybe.

We were advised to have our dinner there by our hotel reception. We found the place almost empty, old fashioned and overpriced. The food was mediocre. Though the service was okay but without a smile. All in all not a place we would visit again.More
