You need to book in advance or come early to this restaurant. Otherwise you have to stand in line. We were not overly impressed with the food, but it was tasty and service was good. You do get the idea that you are of the tourist path because of all the locals that come here.

Ate here as a family of 5 a few times and every meal was top notch. Really good fresh seafood, good service too. May need to book the day before as gets packed after 9. The best dish for us here was the sea urchin pasta (ricci) very well done dish, with a delicate ingredient.

It looked as if the restaurant was brand new. The staff was not really up to speed (the girl who opened the bottle of wine could not do it without breaking the cork) but the food was really fresh.

We ate here as part of a group of ten after it was recommended to us by the hotel. It is a fish restaurant but many of the items on the menu were frozen rather than fresh, and compared to other fish restaurants you'd do better to eat elsewhere. I guess someone at the hotel knows them......

It is run by a couple who were very friendly. They don't speak English but it was very easy to communicate. The fish and the see food were excellent and were made on the spot
