Ok, i like to pay good money for good seafood and i love a pasta with a decent flavour. But this lacked any salt, any pepper, any taste at all...and paying 20€ for a dish like that is absoluteley outragous!!

Fresh fish in a pleasant surrounding, view on the harbor straight on the sea. It's also a fish shop, you can see and choose the fish you want to order. Watch out large portions, price by the weight. Good, fresh, simple but efficient service possibly a bit slow. Prices a bit higher than average in the area but, you are... More

Other than the hot-tempered proprietor (we were entertained watching at least!), the food here is... excellent. Service is a bit scatty but quite honestly, they can get away with murder. Try the crudo and involtini. Spectacular.

Took too long to eat, with super limited choice of food and too expensive wine list. We had to wait at least 1 hr to get serviced. Attendants were unprepared to make people comfortable and were wandering around the tables. Fish was really tasty and fresh but nothing else was available.

We had lunch here and it was amazing. The flavours were out of this world. I have never had scampi like this. You can choose your own fish from the fresh display and have it cooked to your liking. Superb.

It was wonderful to be right on the beach eating the freshest of fish. Staff were great at helping us choose from the fish on offer. Service was swift and friendly. We went twice during the week we were there.
