We popped in here during a stroll around the old town fully expecting it to be a tourist trap but not really caring as it was warm and sunny with a nice view over the water (and the airport). We had a pre-lunch cocktail for €8. The waiter/owner was surly and inattentive...but hey, it was/is a tourist trap.

Wow what a view! The ambience is very relaxed and the view is spectacular! My kids gobbled up the delicious gelato while my husband and I had drinks! The dinner menu looks amazing! We watched fisherman come in with their lute from today's catch! This was a great find! We will be back!
