Service and atmosphere is special with so few tables and cooking in the same room. Cooking is very good but the menu could change a bit more often.

We saw the restaurant from the street passing by with the car.
The restaurNt is small but very nice and you can easily understand anything was there by chance. Everything is there pretending to be extremily simple but it is not and the result it's a very tastefull room the kitchen is open and the chef is cooking in front of you. Ilaria and serge, the owners very nice and friendly both of them. Talking about food it was really really good. The majority of the menu of course based on fish propised in a different way because mixed with a touch of spicy and exotic but not too much. I have some allergies so sometimes to me it's not easy to go in a restaurant and find something for me but ilaria followed me from the beg with advise and I enjoy a lot the food. Overall good price and valuable for what we had. Strongly suggested.

The seared tuna salad was unbeatable, freshest tuna barely cooked (as I'd asked for it), on a salad of the nicest greens, avocado, snowpeas and elegant simple vinaigrette, one could have been in the south of France. Ilaria, the Italian lady half of the owner-couple (husband is from France) was personable, funny and eager to please and took the greatest pride in their painstaking task of providing only the finest ingredients. The other dishes all looked tempting, but one can eat only so much in a sitting. I did indulge in a chocolate mousse w real whipped cream which could rival anything I've had in North America or Europe. But dishes like Fried feta cheese salad, stuffed calamari salad, spaghetti vongole AND the beautiful buffet have tempted me to a firm resolve to return to this little gem of a place. The crowds of sailors, locals, ex-pat Europeans who all vie for a precious seat in this most charming of bistros attests to the quality of the fare.

The food is excellent but so overpriced for what you get. Run by a crazy funny woman. Its a must to go to, but make sure you have some pennies in your pocket! Service was good for the caribbean. The toiletsass are not very pleasant and no running water to wash hans or flush the loo. It is best to make a reservation as this place gets busy.
