“Lovely family run restaurant”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

We ate here twice on our recent holiday. We planned to return a third time for our last night but events overtook us and couldn't make it. Over the two nights we had starters of fish soup, avocado and prawns, clams, prawns in garlic. They were all excellent. We both had steak both nights - we couldn't resist as it was great. Good quality meat cooked to perfection. The steaks were served with chips and vegetables - great to have a variety of vegetables. I wanted to try the flaming fig pudding but just couldn't squeeze it in - looked great.

This is a family run restaurant - dad cooks brilliantly; mum keeps things going in the kitchen and their lovely daughter does a brilliant job front of house. Thank you for two lovely evenings.

“Good and Decidedly Average”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

I would have rated this restaurant 5/5 if I had had the meat kebab as my wife did. I however chose a rump steak and chips - both of which were decidedly average at best. The meat kebab however was excellent and very tasty. The service was friendly and good.

“What a let down.”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

Poor service waited an hour for nothing special. There are much better restaurants less than 50 metres away.
Food was awful.
Don't know how this has got a good rating

“Small but beautiful!”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Very few tables so you must book for evening. Just a gem with local dishes and great steak. Friendly staff. Right on the Main Street opposite the marina.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed 17 April 2014 via mobile

We visited this restaurant the other day after reading all the good reviews. Such a disappointment as the food failed to live up to our expectations. The reviews had praised the quality of the steaks so I ordered a fillet, unfortunately the quality was not good. The vegetables were overcooked and tasteless. Only plus points were the friendly staff and the house red wine, maybe this is why a lot of the reviews have been good,
