Simple but tasty dishes, with a very good variety for those who don't want to just eat pasta or steak. The interior design is ok. Outside it's just the white tent like all the other restaurants in that area have.

You need to get to the waterfront which is about 300 metres long and walk along it. You will find the restaurant. Just look at the names of the restaurants as you walk along because there are many others!
