Been here two times during the summer. Local people recommended it so decided to give it a try. First time got a different dish than what I ordered, received a new one without any problems, but in the end we had to eat separately because the new order came 15 min later. Fuzi with truffels were ok but nothing special,... More

Great little find serving superb seafood overlooking the harbour... Make sure you book if you want a harbour view table.. Also ensure you try the local wines..I found a lovely local Sauvignon Blanc.. Finally top it off with the white and dark chocolate home made mousse..

The seafood, fishes seemed to be ok in overall. We had an Orca plate (with various fishes, shellfish, etc.); in one of grilled squids there was a piece of nylon which was quiet disappointing. The pasta with seafood wasn't my cup of tea. You get the same or more almost anywhere in the town. A bit of pricey. On the... More
