Ordered calamari, octopus and shrimps with a Greek salad that had lettuce in it and an eggplant dip. Calamari was good, the rest was okay. Not crazy about the white wine. Ends off with a house dessert that was original but good, fresh watermelon and...More

Lovely family run fish restaurant in a very good and quiet position. The sea bass (20€) and octopus (€12) were simply superb. Any good restaurant will be proud of their house wine and the white is a delicate sauvignon Blanc, with a touch of Muscatel...More
