Loved our meal at Pura Gula.
It's an amazing small restaurant where you can taste the love in every bite!
The fish is fresh (of course) and is offered in multiple flavours. The staff is open to share their knowledge and recommendations for every catch.
I like my meals on the spicy side and they added some chimichurri just for me.
Our fish was perfectly cooked (not overcooked, that's blasphemy with fresh fish!).

Had a great New Years Day dinner at Pura Gula. Food was really good, we had tuna & mushroom covered steak. Both were excellent and cook to perfection. Great little place, clean and great service. Highly recommend you plan a dinner here.

Came with high expectations from the many good reviews, and especially given the small menu. Could not be more disappointed. My squid was cooked till too rubbery to even cut or chew, whereas my husband’s fish was very undercooked. Pricey mishap, and waited a long time for the food as well. Even before leaving our stomachs were already upset. Recommend going elsewhere, there is good food around.

Hi, i remember you writing the review before you finish your plate, next time try to tell-me (or any waiter wherever you go...) to change your plate, we are here to help you..., and i'm absolutely sure that there will be no problem to change it, but you prefer to damage people of course...

I went to Pura Gula for dinner with some friends. The food and service were good and price is reasonable. They call themselves as "slowfood" and, yes, the food took about 35 min to be served. We had fish with potatoes, veggies and salad that were delicious! Remember bringing cash because they don't accept credit cards.
