    Service was very quick. Mussels were lovely, good size portion. I had wings for main. Food was great. Our waitress was lovely from start to finish. The only downside was the high table and stools and no air conditioning on in hot weather.

    All the food was lovely and service was great but I did feel that it was overpriced. I was charged 31 euros for a prawn and mussel pasta dish, in my opinion too costly for what it was.

    Outstanding meal, minus a few mussels that didn't open so could not be eaten. 4 in our party and we all had a fabulous evening. Beautiful food and impeccable service from a really lovely team of servers. Only notable item was that the area we were sitting was a bit cold

    Food was excellent and the service was fine (let down slightly by a misunderstanding about bringing something out) It being a friday night, it was busy and loud, but thankfully we were in the quietest part, so it was ok.
