We ate here on the first night of a two week holiday mainly due to the atmosphere and there being a live band playing opposite whilst we ate. I opted for the swordfish which was excellent and my partner had the steak which he mainly left as it was tough, a waiter appeared and asked why he wasn't eating his food, to which we said everything was fine just not very hungry, with it being our first night it wasn't the end of the world and we ordered another bottle of wine and carried on enjoying the night. We decided to return to this restaurant on our very last night, mainly due to the band which was playing in the square again and the atmosphere and we ordered the Sea food rice, I was VIOLENTLY ill after eating this to the point where I may not have made the flight home the next day. I cant however fault the service or the atmosphere. Menu is pretty limited and after what happened we wont be returning here again. Beware!!

Ate here in early evening, we both had the piripiri chicken served with chips and salad. The chicken was nice but a bit dry, could have done with some sauce. Restaurant seemed nice, quite clean. Handy place if you're stuck in the area and don't know where to eat, although would probably have chosen to eat elsewhere next time

Yes garlic bread a gastronomic highlight!! In the form of a pizza with cheese this is a fantastic starter or bulk it out with a salad. We enjoy sitting out watching the world go by. A good value restaurant. Good location
