Fresh daily fish. Flexible with the menu, in case you want something special they will try to work it out. Small terrace unfortunately. Inside very cosy. Staff is pretty "dry" but very efficient. Good price/quality !

Beautiful setting. Rather large helpings of good food. Both fish and meat on the menu. Delicious local traditional recipes with fresh anchovies. Friendly relaxed service but with no delays.

This place was ok, nothing that I would return to. Suitable residents of the town better with the food they served

Friendly place in an old well-renovated house. Popular restaurant. Missing menu in English. Recommend this place.
