We went there for lunch a few days ago, actually expecting it to be closed but no, we were welcomed and the three of us had a lovely lunch. We were the only customers there and my tuna tartare was beautiful with the only exception of the lemon mayonnaise- very tasty however way too overpowering for the delicate fish. My friend and fiance both had the veal with curry rice (one well done, the other one rare) and they were both very happy. We had no room for dessert so no opinion on that but I defintiely recommend this restaurant! Also, a small detail but one that makes a difference- our bread was fresh and warm, and the staff gladly arranged a taxi for us at the end of the meal.

Oh dear, I blame all this on Easyjet recommending this fish inn within the in-flight magazine. They are playing to a new clientele and it shows!

For a speciality fish restaurant is offer two fixed menus (30 or 35 Eu) and a mere four a la carte fish dishes. Granted when out baked turbot and grilled sole arrived they were good but it took 30 minutes and the place was a quarter full. There were no vegetables or potatoes to order as garnish and the main courses came with a "nouveau cuisine" (for that read small spoonful) of accompaniments.

Our disappointment came when ordering deserts. Of the 7 on the menu only 2 were available. (Il machina non vare) - not even ice cream! You may have better luck than us it had been planned a a grand night out but wasn't.

Very nice restaurant, where the chef clearly has a personal influence. The atmosphere was good, the staff was friendly, the food was good. Only point of criticism was that an establishment like that could play some better music than the commercial radio, although it was not very disturbing. I would go here again.

Only would have found this place thanks to TA but as it's on a quiet little back road. Inside, it was well decorated with a quiet, understated elegance.

The food was fantastic - I had the fitto miso which was crunchy and flavoursome on the outside and delicate and tender on the inside with a generous portion. My wife had a simple spaghetti in a tomato sauce which was also simply delicious.

Will definitely return here again!

A chic stylish restaurant that tries hard to deliver a great food experience at a value price. Started with the chefs menu - a collection of 6 different fish starters - superb ! Received a complimentary salmon starter - again very good. Our mains included sea bass with artichokes and ginger - delicious! And open ravioli - a little rich for me but my partner enjoyed it. Dessert menu is not as inspiring as the rest of the menu - we choose lemon and ginger sorbet. With a bottle of wine, water and service charge our bill came to under 80 euros. A good night, recommended.
