We came here for lunch during a weekday and ordered plenty of seafood - sea urchins, cockles and mussels, shrimps and more...super fresh from the sea! Then we ordered a fish soup that was delicious and drank a bottle of wine for two...for a total of 90€ per two people, but the seafood was all first quality, definitely worth it!

Food is average, but the risotto was the worst I had in my life... and I am Italian coming from a seaside town... it was just boiled rice, wet and the fish tasted of nothing. I think this is a good trap for tourist.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two dinners here. The seafood was varied and delicious and the view of the Ionian Sea at sunset was exquisitely beautiful!

Dining RIGHT on the sea, in a spacious tented pergola. The owner was extremely attentive and proud of everything they serve here which of course, features all the local fresh caught fish and seafood. The decor is sweet and "country clean" white and blue mixed together with comfortable chairs and decent tables. My standout dish was simply: TUNA! fresh local... More

Fantastic seafood - everything fresh and full of flavour. Go for the crudo not the cooked. And you have to taste the Urchins (Ricci) - amazing - 50 cent each. A must try!
