Quite nice inside , serves up good food , the burger for my son was good , my antricot though it was served cut up in pieces was also good and the partnering Italian beer Nastro Azzurro rounded out the meal

This restaurant has similar dishes and similar prices as others in the area, but it makes an extra effort which makes everything a little better. We've been there 3 times now and everything has tasted wonderfully, the beef carpaccio, spaghetti bolognese, calamari and the best tuna fish I've ever tasted (with Sicilian carbonata). The wine is also excellent. Totally recommend... More

Not too bad, not very Sicilian either. Price is reasonable, food is average. It is a nice place to sit and they have nice cocktails.

This restaurant is just what it says a pub. Good for drinks with nice tables on the patio but for dining, I don't think so. The staff was never smiling or engaged with any of the customers, not really looking happy to come to work! They took forever to take our orders, only came when we gestured and it was... More

Arrived for a cocktail at 7.30pm and decided to look at food menu which looked good so asked for table. Starter arrived promptly and was stunning. Platter of meats and cheeses. Having been in area for 2 weeks realised that service not the best. Never been asked if food is okay and no-one asks if you would like another drink... More

Visited twice for lunch and had good food, good service at a reasonable price - would recommend visiting for lunch! Also visited in the evening and had mai tai cocktails which cost 7 euros each and were 90% ice and no flavour. If you visit I would avoid the cocktails as they are over priced and lacking in flavour as... More

Local wine & salads were nice, Caesar portion was enormous :) seafood mix as a main course was not tasty fish selection and mussels fried in some strange cover. Shrimps grilled was also strangely served. Better walk a bit to the downtown to catch local cafe & taverna. A bit too pricy

A place we were several times. The food and drinks was very nice, The level off service could vary but the atmosphere good.

Looks more like a trendy wine bar than a restaurant but we decided to have a family meal and we were surprised at how good the food actually was. Drinks were also reasonably priced as was the food menu. Staff were very efficient as well although lacking in personality. Highly Recommended.
