Medium-low level compared to the others fish restaurant in Porto cesareo, rude staff, pretty high prices. I will surely not come back.

I have visited this restaurant several time over the last ten years and have never been disapointed. Service is first class and all of the food is simply out of this world. Ihad my first meal here on my honeymoon and we have never hesitated to go back when in the area.

The restaurant has wide choice of fresh local fish and seafood all depends on daily catch. We had one starter plate and two large second dishes - it was more than enough. Local wine is also nice.

We come here every year as it is a safe bet if you like seafood. There is a service at 8pm and one at 10pm, so don't come earlier. The terrace has a nice view over the sea (next to a heavily used road) while the inside is definitely not our taste (too cold/bright lights). Sea food is fresh and... More

We went there twice, great ambiance, great service. You can have better quality and tasty food in the area but if you want to dine in a shiny location, then this is the venue.
