We dined here at Lunchtime today. A pretty drive up the coast from Gallipoli. The seafood was the best we have had in Italy and the waiter was lovely and helpful with our terrible Italian. My husband and I shared a yummy grilled sea Bream and our friends had grilled calamari and oysters. All were cooked fresh and delicious. We had a bottle of white wine and one beer. The bill was 79 € very reasonable. Recommend.

This is a very rustic and simple restaurant on the water in Lido Conchiglie but it delivers wonderful fresh seafood of highest quality as local fisherman delivers straight to table – no intermediary
The calamari was grilled not fried – the only way you know it is fresh as was the case here – flavoursome tender not chewy with grill marks.The last you do not get with the frozen product as it exudes water.You will not get better than this
The swordfish steak was rich tender moist and full of flavour – this can only be achieved if fresh
The fact that it was full of Italians speaks for itself

Been coming back for the last 3 years, fresh food, great service and amazing views! Fantastic with kids, and patient with basic Italian! Highly recommended.

Talk about a terrible experience. Where to start. On arrival ignore by everyone and sundry. Should have taken this as a warning. Eventually sit down and get attention of the waitress. Table, broken plastic table with sharp edges. Nice. Get some service and try to order. Wanted fresh octopus. not available only frozen. ok, fresh squid. nope, only frozen. anything fresh? only sea urchins and mussels. Anything not fried? not really. wow, what a fab place this is. So we order some fried frozen items. bread comes. Stale. Food was ok, but we went specifically for some fresh squid, octopus and other fresh fish. Very disappointing. Then to cap it off, we ask for the bill and Mr Cocky the waiter tries to be funny as we happen to say por favor and not por favore. Then his young sidekick makes fun of our Italian to some Italian guests and make some rude remarks about the English expecting them to speak English. They all fall about laughing. Nice. Pity he didn't realise we understood quite a bit of Italian. Such lovely Italians they are. They should be ashamed to be Italian as this is not the Salento way. Such moral is: If you are English and want to be made fun of, come to this wonderful establishment for frozen average food with stale bread and half broken plastic tables. Worst meal and experience I have ever had in my entire life.

Don't expect to have the best service in this restaurant. The strongest point is the fish which is in my opinion the best fish in Salento.
Prices are really cheap and the view is amazing. Highly recommended!!
