Location is not exclusive, but it is just next to a tram station so it is really accsesible. Decoration is a bit ascetic but very nice. Sitting on high chairs is comfortable. Service is perfect, waiters are plesent, chatty and very efficient. And food is perfect. Been already twice and enjoyed it every time. Dishes are tasty and big. My... More

Fish soup was really bad, no tasty. Main dish, Fish plate, was also not so good, i would say average. I expected more from this restaurant. Interesting was that we were only guests that night, it tells also something. For daily quick lunch maybe but for some higher expetation no!

Service was immaculate - our waiter was all smiles and attentive even though my boyfriend and I weren't hungry and didn't order much. Prices were also very reasonable for fresh seafood. We particularly liked the shellfish soup which was tasty and rich! The rest of the service staff were also warm and friendly. Thumbs up for this outstanding restaurant!!

This is mostly a fish restaurant with excellent products but it has been grandly outdated. The interior feel very cold. As it is a big space but most of the tables are empty, you don't feel that warm cosy atmosphere that you would like to have in a restaurant.

Seafood and sushi was excellent, but the price of bottled wine was too expensive. I recommend to order house wine.

Away from the centre, this cozy seafood restaurant is a marvellous find. Fresh wet fish and shellfish, well prepared and served with excellent wines. Nothing but praise for this place. Welcoming and helpful staff too. Put Google Maps to good use...seek out this place.

Although their sushi is not "orthodox sushi" for real sushi goers, it is tasty. However their cuttlefish goulash is fantastic. House red wine is OK so it may be ordered without checking. On Sundays, at lunch time, restaurant is almost empty so it is worth coming since waiter may have more time for you. What should be improved is customization... More

“… two old dusty books with recipes that were found in basement of their home were foundation of all recipes for Bota Sare dishes. Our chefs find inspiration in those books to master their culinary art and have original dishes always available…”The restaurant also includes a everyday brunch with affordable prices and it can be also delivered to you. Except fish dishes we also offer various meat specialties.
