I had the Monkfish, which was served with prawns. The portion size was decent for the price & the fish was... More

My wife is vegetarian so I asked them what could she have, they told me they were extremely busy but they could make a vegetarian paella. Fair enough is only... More

Located close to downtown, by the fish boats marina, the place is not large, with a few tables inside and few more outside.If the weather permits, don't think twice and seat outside to enjoy the nice view of the small sea-front village, the small harbor and the fishing and leisure boats. The food - primarily sea food - is delicious,... More
