Have visited this restaurant several times in the past. I particularly like their grandmas sausages in a pan. My wife usually has a fish of the day which used to be a whole fish grilled with garlic. This time it was just a small fillet. Price was the same, so can only assume they are trying to make more profit... More

Ate here with my family twice on holiday. Friendly service and huge, reasonably priced portions. Perfect for tourists with children, as it has literally everything on the menu so something for all, but there are better places to eat closeby if gourmet cuisine is what you fancy.

Just had a massive T-Bone cooked to perfection. Price was reasonable too. Can't complain. Staff friendly and the place was full, which is more than can be said for a lot of the other excellent restaurants at the moment.

Visited this restaurant on a couple of occasions as we found the food so good and service great. Plenty to choose from including local specialities. Local teams played boule in the evenings

No ambience, surly staff, poor food and expensive for what it was. There is nothing else to say apart from there are lots of other venues in the area offering better quality.

Breakfast is served more ore less all day. An excellent full english breakfast at 2. 75euros. Best deal and best value for money in the old town

1 of those must do restaurants in the old town harbour area. Eaten here twice this holiday & yet again a fabulous meal at really good prices. The staff are all bi - lingual & are all so friendly. Nothings too much trouble for them . We'll worth giving it a go even if it's just for a quick drink.

After a long walk along the coastal path we enjoyed a nice lunch and a cold beer, I would recommend the frying pan with minced meat and potatoes.

We had brunch here a couple of times. The location is lovely and the staff are friendly. The menu is very good and is very reasonably priced. I had the croissant and coffee and the croissant was overdone. However I also had the cheese omelette which was excellent. I would go back again.
