“Very pleasant dinner on the port front”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

The meal was Ok and the service good, the price was reasonable except for the locally landed fish which is roughly double or more than the other mains.
Nice locationlooking over the boats

“A surprising find on the port”
Reviewed 17 June 2013

The terrasse of this restaurant in front of the port, stands out from all the other restaurants; lovely crisp white cloths on elegant tables amongst plenty of plants and shrubs. Yes it is a little more pricey than the other restaurants, but one soon sees why; attentive service, excellent cuisine - a cut above that you expect to eat in a tourist area. The 4 of us took starters, main courses of fish, pre dinner drinks, wine, mineral water & coffees for 195€. We didn't feel cheated as prices are high everywhere here and often for ordinary food.

“Overpriced, mediocre food, bad service”
Reviewed 27 May 2013 via mobile

We were 4, we ordered 3 pastas and a fish soup. The pasta portion were small, one pasta came late and cold. The fish soup came even later (about 25 minutes after the initial order, the staff apologised for that). The fish soup was overly watery, and the taste was bad. Did not seem freshly made.
When we said we don't want dessert or coffee the staff seemed to lose any form of interest and we had to ask 3 times and wait 15 minutes for the bill.

Overall bad experience.

“Good but a tad expensive”
Reviewed 5 October 2012

Lovely setting and good service. Good choice on menu and catch of the day (chargd per weight). We opted for some tapas to share and then a main from the menu - seared tuna and seabass. The fish was delicious but some of the sides let the dishes down in my opinion - fried rice (shaped like chips) and heavy quinoa on the other dish. The tirimisu for dessert was excellent - one of the best I have had in a long time. Bill was around 100 euros (with just a glass of wine each) so a bit expensive but some good quality in there.

“Nice restaurant on the port.”
Reviewed 10 September 2012 via mobile

Went for dinner last night and really enjoyed it. Everything from the food to the service was really great. All the staff were friendly. Our waiter in particular was funny, but professional although, a bit rushed off his feet - but still managed to be amiable. Food was great - I had a few tapas, prawns, scallops (amazing) and crab rolls (ok), while my husband had a main dish of fillet of loup with quinoa and squid ink - sounds weird but was really delicious. Desert was good - not spectacular but really fine. I think for us, the resto was excellent with the details - the attitude of the staff, the bread was delicious and there was plenty of it, the coffe was great, the atmosphere was lovely (under giant trees). And, the wc's were clean and well stocked. This place was full and it still felt as if we were being taken care of. The prices... A bit steep. For a main dish, 3 tapas, two non alcohol drinks, sparkling water, coffees and two desserts, the bill was 102€. For the convenience, food and service, we were happy to pay. Would recommend this restaurant.
