We had dinner there. The waiters there were very friendly and we didn't have to wait too long. We ate fish and all of it was excellent and well served with a half dose being more than enough for any of us. Recommended!

This is a place to eat good fish. Join the locals, forget about fancy decoration and enjoy the huge number of varieties of fish that they offer. Beware that quantities are huge, so one dish of fish will easily be enough for two people. I...More
