Olavo and his staff are amazing! So friendly and caring. I've been here a couple of times this summer with my groups (I was a tour guide) and the food was great each time. The food was also served in large portions so everybody was always very full after this dinner. Thank you Olavo!

Me and my partner dined here on our last night and wish we had gone there sooner! Food was absolutely delicious!!! I would recommend the Meat kebab which comes on a skewer, was to die for! It's a shame it isn't open at lunch time as we would have dined there for lunch too. Staff were friendly and even gave... More
