The starter platter for 2 was very good and there was enough for 4 of us to get a good sampling. The mains were very good although the small shrimp were too small to shell easily. Overall a good meal.

We had 3 pasta dishes, salat and swordfish. Pasta was nicely cooked, could have had slightly more sauce, seafood was tasty and fresh. Sailors salad(insalata del marinaio) was very nice and refreshing. It's worth a visit if you are around.

It has a nice view of the harbour and they very accommodatingly served us well after 10.30pm. The food was ok but nothing to rave about. However, as I said, we ate late and more than likely had an unenthusiastic chef!

The position of this restaurant is great, overlooking the harbour of the spectacular town of porto santo stefano. Food is good, quick service and not too expensive. Recommendable!

We tried all the restaurants on the port over the last years and this is clearly our favorite. The seafood is superb. The fish and the seafood are fresh and well prepared. The cuisine is of high quality and a fusion of traditional and modern flair. Especially the mixed seafood plate (9 cold and warm dishes), pasta poco loco and... More

Beautiful outdoor seating overlooking the port. Shame the seafood didn't live up to the setting- some of it was clearly frozen. The side order of green beans we ate was so over-cooked that it disintegrated as you tried to pick it up. Service was fine.

Great location with a splendid view of the port bay. Even if the indoor eating area is not much impressive, the tables outside (just accross the street) offer the best place to enjoy a summer lunch. Courtageous and quick service, but the most important - excellent seafood. We were totally taken by this place. Fully recommended.

Thank Miramaks
