Reviewed 2 October 2013

This restaurant was highly recommended we found it to be no better than the others close by. However it is much more expensive.

“A wonderful sense of thyme and plaice”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

The moonlight over the bay, the sound of a bottle of white Sicilian wine being wedged back into an ice bucket and some of the freshest seafood you can find. A simple, exquisite meal. Try the spaghetti al vongole and allow yourself the pleasure of the home-made semifreddo. Be happy.

“Excellent restaurant almost in the middle of the sea”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

This is an excellent restaurant for a romantic dinner with your partner.
You can have a table very close to the sea, and you will just hear the noise of the sea, it's amazing! Food, especially fish is very good, and fresh.
One of the best places ever tried.
The staff is also kind and can suggest you good food. Will come back in the future for my next visit to Sicily!

“Excellent food in an understated setting”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

This restaurant is all about the food. You enter through a long concrete path into a large room with bare walls and a roof only over part of the room. A few tables are situated Close to the beach but the majority have limited if any sea view. Now, that does not matter because the food is excellent with a richness and complexity in flavours that you rarely meet in this region. The menu is varied but the seafood part is the most exciting. The wine list is short but have many excellent choices. Prices are modest and value for money excellent. We would recommend not to book the tables immediately facing the beach since people who walk along the beach sometimes passes your table. It can also be windy in the late night. All in all the best food in the region.

“I was very disappointed.”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

We went there beacuse two local people said it was a very nice place to eat with really excellent food. The place looked ok, really close to the sea, but more like the restaurant was built in a garage or something. The owner was really friendly and I was waiting for the food to be the same. The onwer sugested the fish of the day ( Swordfish, 45€ kilo) and "paprika" to go with the fish and I asked for some fried calamari. Well well well... calamari WASN´T FRESH, you can taste the difference and I was shocked and I heard the microwave sound from the kitchen.. I thought: " Oh dear, my calamari is frozen...nice...".

The fishe of the day was TERRIBLE!!! No taste at att all! Not even salt!!! And the PAPRIKA, which I tought would be fresh paprika and grilled, was STRAIGHT FROM A CAN! TERRIBLE AND COSTED 6€!

SAYING SHORTLY: BAD FOOD AND HIGH PRICE! AH! THEY FORGOT US WHEN ARRIVED MORE PEOPLE, DIDN´T ASK ABOUT MORE DRINKS WAHTSOEVER!

DON´T GO THERE!
