Nowadays, the owner's son and his wife are managing the place and they are very nice and friendly. The place is quite small but... More

Great mussels for starters, great steak for mains and great caramel dessert, extremely cosy interior and the friendliest staff. Mother and son run this restaurant and it is well worth many visits even during a short stay :)

This litte, hidden gem has a very peculiar interior what you will like (like me) or hate. Anyway, if you want to have a great steak...this is the place. Normally fish is better in most places but here I had the fillet mignon and it was one of the best in a long time.

quirky environment, really friendly staff, really wonderful steak and shrimps; it's a bit off the beaten track but a short, five euro taxi ride from the centre and well worth it. Great value too.

Having read the reviews online we decided to try this restaurant. We took a taxi as it is out of the main centre but only 5 minutes out - in a residential area so the location was unusual! It is run by a son and mother (who is the chef) and it is a very small space but very quirky.... More
