I was staying at La Splendida hotel so go to use this restaurant a few times. The food is super fresh, fish is amazing, great presentation and reasonable prices. The staff is lovely and very nice atmosphere. Live music on weekend. Would definitely recommend.

We were very hungry having missed lunch and were looking for some hearty fare. Not disappointed - we had the calamari followed by the lamb burger and the esparto. Perfect. Tasty and filling. Desert good too. Great location and friendly service.

This spot is neatly tucked away but once found you know this is a top spot! Staff cannot do enough for you! The food that comes out of kitchen is brilliant. Prawn tempura is probably the best I have eaten! Highly highly recommend!!!
