When you eat here, you feel exclusive. It only seats 10 people at a time! The food is basic but so, so good. The staff is wonderful. I had to wait a bit for a seat. I’m so glad I did.

Cozy, tiny place serving only couple of meals, though very delicious. We had shrimps and wonderful juicy fish, both with starters and two kinds of fresh juice. Highly recommended.

We opted for this restaurant because it was #1 on trip advisor. Although the food was good, I know you can do better, and we did the following night. It is very fresh and very authentic but it is literally a hole in the wall...More

A tiny little place down a side street. Three small tables. The food was delicious and really great value. We were offered a free starter and two free small glasses of fruit juice. Brilliant, try it for yourself

Awesome place serving genuine food. Tiny but worth popping back if it's full the first time! The food is simple but so good. The best were prawns in a well-spiced tomato sauce served with fresh avocado. Insanely good! Menu changes daily. Remember it is closed...More
