I agree with the previous review: this is a no frills restaurant. And she is also right: don't order the olives. Most people around us seemed to be locals and ordered soup as a starter.

A windy but sunny day so we ate outside - a bit close to the road, but OK. Attentive helpful service. Ate fresh mackerel and squid, both delicious, cooked with the usual potatoes and olive oil. Delicious. (Olives for starters weren't great) If you're looking for an inexpensive simple fish meal, this should suit.

If you want to take a brake for a quick meal with low prices try this restaurant. Once again: forget the salt cod.

Typical touristy place, mediocre food, hygiene deficient, wish I hadn't gone there. Atmosphere uninteresting, tables are packed together on the patio, and busy street with lots of cars in front. Better off going to a place near the center
