We had a fantastic dinner in this restaurant during our summer holiday. The staff were very kind and helpful and every course was excellent with clear and honest flavours. The restaurant has correct prices. Absolutely worth it!!

This restaurant was directly opposite our Hotel Panoramic. Booked table for 10 and they dealt with us very efficiently although we ordered individually. Total including drinks and a tip was 204.50 euro. Local fish dishes were the best choice.
