We took the fish set menu and it was tasty (including the Maltese Aljotta). I recommend this place, especially for an outdoor visit.

Food was ok. We have had a lot of really good food on this trip and it may be why we thought this one was just ok. Service was quite slow although staff was very nice and friendly.

I visited this restaurant today during my lunch break after the first day of my new shop opening. Since I need to go on a diet I ordered a salad which usually its a punishment for me to go to a restaurant and order a salad as I am a Pasta and meat lover. Believe me I enjoyed the freshness... More
