The eating experience at Pulena was very good from tbe moment we entered. Staff were extremely friendly and efficient. The menu is varied and caters for all tastes as well as being reasonably priced. The food we ordered was nicely presented, hot and thoroughly enjoyable. All in all, Pulen's is to be highly recommended. We will return

We visit this place several times each year. Sometimes even more then twice a month. It never ever disappoints! Being from the island and knowing the people who run this place gives me the right to tell you to try this place! Warm and friendly to both kids and adults alike. You'll always be served with scrumptious bruschetta till your... More

if you like very very very very al dente pasta you have to try this restaurant. We order tagliatelle rabbit sauce and garganelli with veal truffle and pistacchio. The sauce was really good but the pasta (as you can imagine from what I just said before) was like raw. Probably we will try this place again but for sure we... More

We had the seafood soup as appetizer that was amazing and I give that 5*. For the main course I had the seafood ravioli with prawns. While the prawns where incredible tasty and very fresh, the ravioli where just not that exciting. Without the sauce they tasted not like much, very bland and very like just nothing.

this restaurant is owner by Godwin & Rina. They go that extra bit to please patrons. Ask for them by name when you are making your order. The standard of the cuisine is good and the restaurant is close to the water front, A three course meal costs between €25 and €35 without wine per person. I have been to... More

One from many restaurants located along the harbour waterfront. The tables are set up mainly inside the restaurant, some of them are outside, close to the water. The menu concentrates on the sea food, but there are also some meet and veggies. The portions are large and they taste good. The staff, probably family members, are friendly and attentive. The...

The season has not yet started, and customers are still few at the sea-side restaurants, so we did not have high expectations as to the quality of the food. We have picked this one at random, and we did not regret it. We have been offered some bruschetta on tasty, freshly baked bread, still warm from the oven. We have... More
