Menu has everything from pizza and hamburger to fish, paella and steak. We liked fish sayadieh the most - it was served with very tasty fried rice. Children's menu is also available. Outdoor seating area is ok, but inside the restaurant looks very basic.

The food was so delicious. We had the whole Fish Sayadiyeh 12.75JD and the Paella 16JD. Large portions. Cooked fresh. We tried it because they were offering 10% off. Wish I could give a higher rating, but food is not everything. For that price there should also be service and atmosphere. It s in a scenic location on the marina, so the views are nice, but other wise nothing. All the other restaurants on the marina make an effort with candles and lanterns and tables down by the water. Here the wait staff is unfriendly and unkind, the tables are bare and not that clean, the inside of the restaurant is just a plain white box with a television that some man at a counter is watching. It looks like an old fashioned, cheap town dive, but the prices do not reflect that. Spoke to the chef and he said that they are packed during the high season because the food is good., so they don't care. I hope that is enough to keep them going. We saw a lot of people come up to look at the menu, but turn away. The poor atmosphere turned them away. Too bad, they missed out on some good food.

Nice atmosphere and delicious food. I loved the steak sandwich, Greek salad! It has a spacious yard next to it where the kids can play with scooters or bikes. It's a cozy and casual restaurant and the service is good too.

the sayadieh was to die for! The best I ever had, portions were huge, but a bit expensive!

Atmosphere was very nice, great oldies music, and staff were a bit stiff but nice enough.
