I was well looked after and enjoyed several meals here. Very good. Relaxed but not too in formal. Steak was especially good.

Lovely setting over the harbour, the balcony allows you to enjoy the linger sunset. The food is of a high standard and the Chateaubriand topped with Foie Gras is fabulous and great vale at €18. Probably the best restaurant in town.

The meal was not good. I went to pay a bill of 48 euros. I gave a 50 euro note and took my change. The waiter suddenly went mad and said he had given me too much and I owed him 5 euros. I declined to give it to him. He physically grabbed me and threatened to call the police.... More

Highly recommended for the location in the harbour, the reception and serving which is friendly and relaxed (the Chef coming over to table to great and to make people feel welcome), and the high quality of the dishes and quantity. The fish is brought to the table to allow guests to check it's freshness. Good wine list (we particularly liked... More
