Staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. And the food was truly excellent, lots of local specialities on offer. Most of all, the location of this restaurant and its beautiful outdoor terrace is simply breathtaking - situated high above the sea with mountains on either side.

We all had a great dinner with wonderful view, service, food and prices. Highly recommend to reserve table close to the view and come an hour before sunset. Everything we ordered was very good. I'll visit agai for sure if I'll back to the region.
