Be warned in this place, we got there and they put down an extremely small basket of (almost stale) bread, with a few pieces of broken bead-sticks. So I started eating this. I was ravenous, and the food was taking a while, then… before I had even finished the bread they took it away and replaced it with another basket... More

This is one of several beachside seafood restaurants on the Lungo mare Argentina. We had lunch, and the place was quite busy. The service was very fast, the seafood well prepared and fresh. and the ambiance to our liking.

You can come everyday, drive 50 km to come in this restaurant - in summer they will pay no attention to you if you don't book in advance ! When you step in ,you are told to come back in one hour... Even if you have already been here the day before ...

Wow, right on the beach with a great ambience. The staff were very friendly, happy and efficient. The food was beautifully presented and delicious (we had the Spaghetti with Lobster). Finished off with an excellent tiramisu - a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

We booked a beach front table for 8pm two days in advance. We arrived around 5.30pm and laid in their sunbeds (for free), ordered two Aperol Spritz and was given a complimentary panini and chips. We had the ravioli, shrimp pasta, grilled shrimp, creme brûlée and macaroons with berries. Really good food and service is great. The view is amazing... More

We stopped here based on trip advisor reviews while we were driving from Provence to Tuscany. This great little town was close to the border between France and Italy and made for the perfect stopping point for lunch. Fairly easy to get to from the main autostrada and we were lucky enough to find parking just outside the restaurant. I'm... More

Small family run restaurant on the beach. Same owners for many years (they live off season in Argentina I think). Casual atmosphere with awesome sea food and some pasta dishes. Great deserts also, and the price is good. Suggest reservations to get the best tables right above the sand. Please note they close for the season early September.
