Average food reminiscent of being back at school.
Tiny menu with burgers despite being a Mediterranean restaurant.
Random rock and 80s pop music didn’t fit the theme at all.
Tall prices in respect of food quality

A very pleasant evening. The waiter (proprietor? ) was attentive without being officious. The food isn't that unusual but everything well prepared.

We had a delicious meal here for my birthday, before going to the Lighthouse Cinema - for which Lavanda is very convenient . We both had the special of sea bass, beautifully fresh and served with tomato rice. The home made dessert was delicious. Service was attentive without being intrusive and we had an interesting chat with the owner about Croatia, where he comes from
( there is a lovely photograph on the wall). Look forward to returning.
