Fantastic view. Reasonable rates. The seafoodplatter for two was too little and the squid a little chewy. The 'catch of the day' (Brasse) was very good. The pasta was al dente but the tomatosauce seemed industrial and was very thick.

Great view, great food!! (mushroom risotto, fish of the day) The entrance is a little hidden - The place is on the first floor, next to the orthodox church. Perfect price/value.

Terrible service and terrible food. I went here for dinner and ordered an "artichoke bake special" it came out like a stodgy roast. My partner asked for parmesan and got it once the meal was finished. The red wine that was recommended by the waiter...More

We are sorry you wife didn't like the octopus dish. Everyone has different tastes and hundreds of people do enjoy it.
