As others have written the waiters beckon you to come into eat.. I thought why not and ordered s Greek salad.. which was lots of bits of sad lettuce, with some tomatoes & olives thrown on top. The feta was some sort of plastic cheese...More

I seriously don’t understand why this restaurant has such good reviews. The fish couldn’t be more mediocre (and drowning in oil) and the pasta was straight up terrible (overcooked and tasteless). The service was slow, there are thousands of flies sitting down on your food...More

We chose this place because most of the restaurants in the center were packed around lunch time and it was the first one we found with an empty table. Wouldn't call the food bad, at least not the salmon which was only a little overcooked....More

We stopped for a drink, but once settled decided to have lunch as well. The food was amazing, try grilled salmon or sardines, so delicious and cooked to perfection. Thanks to Bruno for taking good care of us, catering to our wishes.

Ate on the terrace in April 2011 and it was delicious. We shared a seafood rice (25euros) which we were told would feed two people. It was fantastic and easily the best paella we ate on our trip and would feed three people especially if you have bread and a starter. This was the best meal we had during our 3 weeks in Spain and Portugal. One of our party spilt a little sauce on her top and the waiter came to her aid immediately with a spray to fix her blouse. Fantastic service, setting, price. Wish I could eat there again.
