Meal spoilt by the surprise when getting the bill. Paid 33 euros for a red snapper that I hadn't picked out for myself. Price by weight apparently, but staff couldn't tell me what the weight was. Twice the price of everything else on the menu....More

Our guide took us to this restaurant by the harbor. My daughter really enjoyed her spaghetti seafood and we had a nice fish to share (that we could see before cooked). Clean place and friendly staff. Reasonable price, 22€ per person.

It seems , from what I've been told , that your hobby is to post bad reviews on each restaurant you go, since its very difficult to meet your taste. Heartly wish you to find a better hobby.
