Quite a quiet restaurant in a busy area. We stopped for a quick bite and all ordered pizza. My friends enjoyed theirs but I found mine was mediocre. Nice friendly staff and quick service. Its a no smoking policy even on the terrace. If you smoke they ask you to cross the road

Wonderful food with a full menu even tho we were there “out of season” The sea bass on the specials board was an awesome surprise! Absolute unexpected delicious bonus! Attentive owners, lovely atmosphere, beautiful sunset views.. thank you 🙌
