Very tastefull food, it seems they don't use flavours or other tricks, just a great chief! We (4people) eat twice and ALL dishes were delicious, fish, grill, cooked food, house wine, salad, veggie food and apertizers.

The food is delicious, the meat is well done, basically melting in your mouth. The service was very professional and the view on the terrace is amazing. The prices are fair.
