We were a quite a group but the staff were all friendly and attentive to our needs and we were all served in the minimum of time.

Fish sharing platter is well worth going for. They advertise that her husband catches nearly all the fish - he must be a very busy fisherman. A genuine place and not the tourist trap you might have feared on the front.

I had lunch at this casual restaurant and had some of the most delicious sea bass and sea bream ever. The price was reasonable and the staff were very friendly. It appeared that a number of locals were also eating there, which is always a good sign!
