We have made multiple visits to Paulus in the last few years. Really good Italian with plenty choice for kids, veggies and meat eaters. Prices reasonable- the touristic menu up to 7pm is great value. Portions generous.Never had a bad meal. Staff lovely.

We have visited here often and it never disappoints. Great Italian food at very reasonable prices. The house special offers spaghetti with prawns is very good.

Had the tourist menu 11.50 euros. Excellent food and great service. Even out of season this restaurant was busy. Would certainly go back.
