Worth it for the experience and friendliness of the restaurant owner. It’s like you're dinning in his house. during the dinner he plays violino, what is a unexpecting suprise.

This restaurant in Jambiani only serves by reservation, because they only fish the seafood in the day you will eat it. Very fresh food, good price and the host is friendly. If you are in Jambiani, don't miss the opportunity to go there.
