I've been to this place many times of the years and it's never dissapointed. Granted it can get busy during high season when there are many tourists around but that's the case for any place at the coast. Situated on a calm square away from the road it has both indoor and terrace tables. Their staff is always very friendly... More

Decent if ambitious menu. Unpretentious, good quality, not fine dining, good portions. Both tourist and local hangout.

We had to wait almost 2hrs before our food finally arrived. It was busy when we got there but at least 6 tables that arrived after us got there food before us. There are plenty of other places to eat in the square. You're better off going to any of them.

We enjoyed an early dinner on the patio. We had a shrimp pasta and enjoyed the fact the heads of the shrimp remained on. It added to the great flavor of the sauce. We also enjoyed a small Pizza. I thought the flavor of the pizza was good but I did not care for the chewy bland crust. We would... More

This is a way too touristic place to go for dinner... They will take to many people (was there with 6 with reservation and they placed us at a table of 4), making it too crouded and service might go slow / some things are forgotten / etc. It's definitely not a bad restaurant, just not one of the bests...

We visited this place on an evening without reservation. We were lucky to find a table. The pasta with seafood was tasty and fresh. We think it's good quality for price.
