Extremely rude and arrogant staff. After I found a big piece of plastic in my sardine balls and I alerted the waiter about the unexpected discovery, his response was confrontational and not apologetic whatsoever. I explained I wouldn't be paying for this and he told...More

Having read the reviews we arrived around 715pm to secure a table, we were first to be seated. Once the restaurant opened, we were completely ignored, after they had served 10 tables who had arrived after us, I got up and asked if it was...More

We had this place recommended by some locals on our search for a traditional restaurant and we were not disappointed. The place was really packed (around 9:00pm), thus we had to wait like 15 minutes for our table and in between the courses a couple...More

If you are fine with haggling and arguing over restaurant bills and you don't care about paying a couple of euros too much, do NOT read on. And I won't be telling of the food, either, other than it was just excellent! So. You've been...More
