The place is little but very nice. It’s like a restaurant, it costs less and the plates are smaller but the food is very good. For everyone who wants to eat typical foods of the place. THE FISH IS FRESH!

Delicious grilled fish and prawns direct fresh from the sea and mediterranean specialities. The waiters were kind and helpful. Very small, discreet and charming little restaurant, not a tourist attraction. Plenty of food and not very expensive. A nice discovery, strongly recommended!
