This restaurant was strongly recommended by our hotel receptionist and it did not disappoint. Food, wine, service and atmosphere all excellent. The prosciutto was arguably the best we had in Italy and the turbot wonderful. No, this place is certainly not cheap but then such quality shouldn't be.

This restaurant was very nice with excellent food at reasonable prices, considering the quality and service.

The decor was formal, the waiters professional but friendly and the food was fresh. My husband is allergic to gluten and they had no problem with that.

My husband has mozzarella and prosciutto appetizer. It had a small bed of arugula with it. The mozzarella was so fresh it melted in my mouth. I had the burrata also delicious.

I don’t eat meat so I got the crab legs-delicious. My husband also had fish, a filet dressed with delicious fresh basil pesto.
The wine was good.

Unfortunately we were too full for dessert.

Located on a quiet street. Very attentive and helpful staff. Very good and reasonably priced wine list. Had turbot. Phenomenal. Wife had king crab legs. Enjoyed it. Gluten free choices. Nice atmosphere. Low light, but not dark quiet.

...which restaurant has the rudest waiter of them all!
This restaurant is one of extremes. The setting is lovely, beautifully laid out we had a table next to the kitchen where you can watch your food prepared through a large glass window, whilst surrounded by floor to ceiling mirrors.
My wife's starter of scallops arrived as a portion of pasta with tomato - we advised immediately it was wrong to be told it was correct and we'd got what we ordered!! No apology, no let me check, no there must have been a genuine mix up due to language issues - no you're wrong.
The dish was taken away and the correct one returned with an apology from the original waiter who took the order. No visit from the manager by the way...
Now that should have been it but let's call him "grumpy" - real name and picture on the website, spent the evening in a sulk giving us sly looks. One of the wine glasses had a chip in it which we asked to be changed, which it was without fuss - but then he showed it to the other waiter in the kitchen laughing as he pointed it to it, we had our own laugh guessing the comments made about the request. €5 was removed from the €40 cost of the wine!
Now to the good bit - the food was fantastic - some of the best flavours and combinations we have had anywhere. The dish we nearly didn't get of the scallops in pasta was sublime. The mussels were delicious and the melon mousse exquisite, in fact we couldn't fault what came out of the kitchen.
The wine was fine if a little overpriced. Total cost €143.
So to the rating 5 for the food 1 for the service = an average 3.
Would we return - not until grumpy is replaced by happy - bohemian my !!!!
