Usually when restaurants offer a "big fish to share", we're skeptical. Especially after getting burned a number of times.

But this time we agreed and were SO glad we did. The fish was incredible, the portions huge and the price ridiculous. Overall both the food and service were excellent.

Highly recommend

Stopped for lunch on a day trip out. Our choice of restaurant was down to reviews on Trip Advisor and I have to say previous reviews are spot on - this restaurant is wonderful for some great fresh fish, fresh salads and delicious home made deserts. The menu is what you would expect from a restaurant by the sea but the quality is really good. Service is also great. Although a drive from where we are staying we have said we think we will come back and try it for dinner as I think the atmosphere at night will be great there. Just one word of warning - don't follow the map on trip Advisor - it takes you down a back road. The restaurant it tight on the main road on the right as you enter the village.

Barracuda a la plancha is in season. No doubt, the fresh fish to order. Accompany the Barracuda with the house wine and you are a winner. My daughter had the steak, and it was a wonderfully cooked piece of beef. Desserts are all "home made" and excellent.

Stopped by here on the recommendation of our hotel when I asked for the best seafood restaurants in the area. While most of the food was nice, I was appalled that the cherne (a local fish which is rock bass in english) was actually raw!. It was a large piece of fish which was meant to serve two, but it was very badly prepared. I am very used to seafood and I would tend to like fish slightly under done rather than over done - but this was raw. The waiter's response when we pointed this out was "it's a big piece of fish". He did not offer to cook it properly at all.
Dreadfully dissapointed in this as we had heard it was a good restaurant. I shal not return.
