We were staying in the hotel that houses this restaurant so after a long day and with an early departure we decided to eat here. My wife's grilled octopus was not very good and my shrimp were just OK. The service was slow rather than not rushed and in fact the waiter did not pour one glass from our wine... More

The service was extremely slow. Waited over an hour for our meal to come out. Pork dish had nice sauce but meat was tough. Steak was cold as were some of the other dishes. Our group consisted of 11 people. Perhaps the kitchen isnt equiped to handle a large group while making sure everyines dish comes out hot and at... More
