We picked this restaurant based on it's trip advisor sign and affordable price. We were however very disappointed with the quality of the food. The sardines were overcooked, the rice was awful, the vegetables mushy and lettuce was still dirty (there was actually a bug on the lettuce). It was one of the more economical options in the area, but it did not live up to it's award of excellence.

Having remembered the place from our previous trip as a nice place with good food and nice atmosphere, we went again and encountered a pretty grumpy waitress and quite tasteless food. What happened here during the last 2 years?

Maybe we just had a bad luck, but the food and the service was horrible! and please dont make them fool you with all those TripAdvisor stars and certificates. Fish wasnt grilled as we were assured, rice and beans never arrived and waiter looked and behaved like he just woke up. There wasnt a chef but the person who was taking order prepared the meals. Because the tables were outside we didnt check the interiors and that was telling a lot about the quality of the food. No locals there and that should be a sign to avoid this place.
I dont like to write bad reviews , I also never complain in the restaurants, but I would never go back there again!

If you are happy to watch the world go by while waiting for a fabulous steak or steak on a skewer, this is the place for you. Only one waiter on. Starter/wine fine. We were there hours. Saying this, the steak was fabulous and the waiter good fun. Don't go if you are in a rush.

We were amazed by the quality of the food in this value for money restaurant. There is nothing pretentious or over the top about this small restaurant. We just got good, honest service with two delicious meals and drinks for around 20 euros.
