Food – Menu:

We weren’t thrilled dining in a basement establishment. But after hearing a tip, we chose to set aside our hesitations and go on this culinary adventure.

The restaurant draws a continuous stream of tourists despite being hidden away and becoming very raucous when dining hours are at their busiest.
We selected swordfish with a banana and passion fruit sauce and limpets.

We were overjoyed. The finest, freshest ingredients were used to produce each dish.

We also tried a traditional regional meal with a laurel skewer, which was a crucial component. The meat was exquisite and instantly melted on the tongue.

Every dish was delicious, even the starter of grilled limpets, which was a pleasant surprise.

The dinner was immediately delivered with copious amounts and no bother.


The staff were amiable and made every effort to provide prompt service. Despite the restaurant being full, they patiently informed us about the dishes. Even taking time to explain the photographs displayed in the dining room.

However, after completing our meal, it became apparent that there was a focus on quickly clearing tables for incoming customers.

While this is understandable, it was somewhat off-putting to feel rushed to vacate our table. We hope that a better balance can be struck between serving existing customers and accommodating new ones.


We were charged an average price of €27 per person, which was quite reasonable considering the ample portion sizes.
