I had a very good time there. The food is very good, and the atmosphere is very pleasant. There is a wide choice of sea-food, fish, meats and pasta, so there is food for every taste.

We were seated quickly and our server Ran explained that the restaurant gets fresh fish twice daily, and also explained the menu items. Everyone seemed to speak very good English. The fish for two was terrific, certainly enough for two people. Ran was attentive and...More
