We got so much more than we expected judging from the appearance of the entrance and the prices on the menu. It was really fresh seafood, very decently cooked, in generous portions. We truly enjoyed our dinner.

Found this small restaurant by chance. Highly recommended specially the “lapas”, octupus and schrimp. Everything very fresh and with a great flavour. Loved everything and the owner is very friendly. Will soon come back.

The most amazing seafood i had ever had in my life. The octopus was a star - prawns and shells were beautifully cooked. And the wine wich was reccomended from the waiter was pretty good. Keep up guys.
