This is an informal local restaurant with a short, but tasteful selection of dishes. They usually have one fish and one meat main course on the menu. If you feel adventurous, you can ask for the chef's dessert. He'll surprise you with something yummy👍!

We sat outside and ate from the limited (but delicious) menu. Great vibes due to the many locals there and yummy fresh food (the fish was amazing). Service was good and the waitress was very helpful.
