A very friendly staff. Food fresh and very tasty. Fish soup and steaks very my choices. It is next to the beach and is cheaper than restaurants on the seaside.

The service in the restaurant was great, very friendly waitress. When you like seafood, then you'll love this place. Good variety of fish, oysters, crabs etc. Price is reasonable too. The place itself is cosy - red tablecloths, open fireplace. I felt like I was at home. Overall I had a great experience, would visit again next time.
