We walked in with only 1 table pccupied with family of 1child. I ordered their antipasti of 4prawns, tuna and 3oysters. My husband a plate of simple pasta woth botarg powder but he only had 1bite for it didnt have any taste. The servant came at end to collect our dishes and didnt bother to ask why my husband dish was empty. We went to the casher and we were shocked to see €80just for my apetizer. Explains why the restaurant was dead and on top due to the wind all around the restaurant is blocked with walls so do expect any sea view but rather seeing all tbe empty tables. There is So many seafood restaurants to choose from, i would not take the risk on this one. Hope we heped!

Nice location upon entering, they made an effort with the deco and the furniture. We had a variety of dishes (filet steak, grilled shrimp, sea bass, burgers). None of the dishes were very good frankly the steak while cooked in accordance with my request, was not tender and the texture wasn't what I had expected. The shrimp were nicely presented but again, tasted average. Considering location and price, they'd have to do better. Sea bass was basically unseasoned and we had a lot better fish elsewhere on the island, no comparison. This is the first 'burger' (it was just minced beef in place of a hamburger), that my kids did not finish though i have not tried it. This looks like a lounge / late dinner kind of place not a family restaurant for lunch extremely pricey though it is in a nice location (and no parking nearby) and the decor is beautiful.

Last but not least we had to items on the bill that either never came or were cancelled, so do check for accuracy. To sum it up: somewhere between 2- and 3 stars, not recommend for the food, take your money elsewhere if good food is what you are after.

We went to this restaurant after checking on Tripadvisor first. The best is the location. We got to the Pullmann hotell and met a very nice lady at the reception. She followed us to the "shuttle bus" to the restaurant - which is plassed near to the sea a few 100 meters from the hotell. Very good service. I forgot my vallet the first day and got it back the next (all cash included of course). Nice prices and friendly for kids. Good drinks, nice pasta & pizza.

We has a wonderful time here nearly all food was fresh and amazing. Only the calamari starter which was cooked from frozen let it down it was tough with too much batter. The live band were a great accompaniment.
