The interior here is not what people gravitate to but the fish is. Fish and shellfish. Great assortment of wine. Knowledgeable staff and quick service. Book a table for peak hours, otherwise staff tries to squeeze you in if possible. This is a popular place,...More

The restaurant is quite small but with a very charming interior and service-minded staff. Very busy, so you're advised to book a table. The fish soup is excellent, but stay away from the smoked shrimps!

This looks like a more casual restaurant on the main square, but the food was very good. They don’t take any reservations, so it’s a good idea to arrive early to get a table. Shortly after we arrived all tables were occupied. There is seating...More
