Have noticed this restaurant on previous visits but never used it. It is always very busy. Being early in the season we were able to book a table and were not disappointed. The service was very friendly and helpful. The interior decor was nice and warm. The food though was pabulous. We could only manage two courses. The soup was... More

We always eat here on our first and last evening, at least, and this visit was no exception. The food was lovely and the service from Antonio, Joseph and Georges(Richard)was up to their brilliant standards.

This restaurant is a little outside the Marina, but well worth a visit. The food is freshly cooked and is well cooked and delicious. The kebab is an experience!

We visited four times over two... More

Another restaurant that we visited a few times during our stay. Very friendly staff. The food was good especially the kebabs. They do a special kebab which is not on the menu and is for two to share. Well worth a visit.

Ate here a couple of times and food very good. Had steak and Chicken kebab and both meals big, tasty, and value for money. Also received free port at end of meal. One minor negative for restaurant was limited menu however would recommend this restaurant and would come again.
