Had lunch here today with a friend. It was amazing. Excellent fresh food. We had octopus that was absolutely delicious and the monkfish with prawns and mussels in creamy white wine sauce which was extraordinary. Also the views to the port are lovely!! So recommendable!

This place is just top notch. No over complication of the menu with just simple and delicious seafood. The platter is a must if you just can't decide what to go for. Although in honesty you'll want it all after you've been once.
