Tourist trap. Nothing special. Our food actually had no taste. Go up the hill. Setting was cool though.

Prices are not as high as Michellin-starred, but not cheap. The food was ok, but not surprising. Would try another venue next time.

We had lunch here and although the food was good the service was terrible. I am disappointed that Michelin would award a star to a restaurant with such poor service. There was one waiter that was helpful and unfortunately all the tables were calling him...More

This may not be the greatest restaurant for you. The entire menu is seafood. Literally. There is only one dish (pasta with pesto sauce) on there without seafood. There are no other meat dishes or vegetarian dushes offered.

I believe reservations are only made by phone or in person. We were lucky and got a table immediately. You can try going by the day before to make the reservation in person or ask the staff at the place you are staying to... More
