Stopped for a late lunch (~2pm) and ordered their steamed mussels in wine, etc. ... they were wonderful!!! Had always heard they had great pizza. Still not something I planned to order, but we had the four cheese pizza, thin crisp crust, wonderful blend of cheeses. Would definitely recommend.

The ceasar salad is to die for! We had dinner twice there and everyone in our group was happy. The orders varied from fish, pizza, shrimp entrees. They bake fresh bread every morning do drop in early to before they run out.

Dinners here are fantastic. It is a slow, enjoyable dining experience. The food is plated so well and the flavors are incredible. Really enjoyed being able to sit outdoors. Cannot say enough about the food. So good! Bon Appetit!

Just across the road from Flamingo Beach. Great for breakfast (especially omelettes and pancakes). Waitress remembers how you like your coffee. Dinner was lovely, good selection, music most nights, excellent service. Good takeaway pizzas too (a little on the pricey side otherwise would have had 5 stars).

This was the closest restaurant to our hotel, so it was very convenient and fast. The food was not something I'm used to and I could never quite get a taste for the sauces and spices they use here, which I understand are pretty typical for this area. The thing I liked the most was French Onion Soup.

Stumbled on this place and stopped for dinner last night, breakfast this morning. Both meals very good. Sat out on the patio and had pretty good service. Cutlery at breakfast was not clean but as we were sitting next to the cutlery drawer, helped ourselves to a clean set. Their baguettes are being snapped up at a pretty steady rate.... More

Have eaten here several times and it's always a solid meal. The food this time was, as usual, very good. Sitting outside, with the live music, makes for a relaxed and enjoyable ambiance. Highly recommend.
