Except for the fact that dogs aren't allowed on the balcony for casual afternoon cocktails and a snack I cannot fault this restaurants class, sophistical and service! the food is well worth a visit too!

I have had sandwhiches, late afternoon bar snacks and dinners which have all being superb!

Looked good at first glance with a nice outside eating area and nice sea view.
Unfortunately it took over forty minutes to bring the food and then only one of the two meals arrived and the quality was not worth the wait.
There appeared to be a one to one ratio of waiters to customers, who were so set on their own agenda talking and using their cell phones that they appeared to have forgotten the customers. As the food took so long we neede to order a second round of drinks. The waiter duly complied and returned with - one drink. Yes we had to repeat the request for the remaining order. Would not visit this venue again

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here with our family - actually surprised this place isn't rated higher! All 4 of us thought our meals and the service were excellent... we had starters (carpaccio) and steaks and pasta for dinner. The restaurant was packed as well, so I think the rating on here is lower than it should be - maybe to keep it a secret for the locals.

Precise that you want your pasta aldente. Friendly service. Many italian favorites, liked the linguini vongole, veal in lemon sauce and burrata/proscuitto! Good value for money.

We had heard and read so many different reviews from very positive to quiet negative. First when we arrived we were received rather coldly. The unprofessional but arrogant young
lady explained us that reserving a table outside does not mean sitting outside. (We had gone there personally for the reservation) But then the waiter Admire saved our evening: He organized 2 chairs for a little table in the lounge area and took care of us the hole evening. The best service we could imagine: very efficient and friendly! Wine and food was good too. We will come back.

Thank KarinStuttgart
