Great food and good service. Lovely pizzas and salads. Tastey traditional alioli & fresh bread starter. Beautiful canal side location with a peaceful view of mountains overlooking the harbour.

Visited here while staying at the Portofino Hotel next door during a skydiving trip in Jan 2015. Varied menu, with plenty of fish options. Friendly staff and in a great location next to the water (depending on where you sit).
