If you search for a special experience visit the Black Pearl and you will get maritime history accompanied with great food. Can recommend meat and fish that comes cooked to its perfection.

Well, I have eaten here about once a year. Fish and Pasta dishes all good. Nice wines and beer. Rather nice to walk up "on deck" for dinner :-) And relaxing to look out over the sea and yachts during dinner.
