Lovely courtyard setting. In great part of toarmina. Very good lighting. Glass and crockery was amazing. Service friendly and professional. Only one error with my daughters allergy but corrected. Recommend the tasting menu with matching wines, excellent. Deserves a Michelin star. Should renovate bathroom area to be as classy as rest of restaurant.

I had the gnocchi and it was just okay. It was actually quite bland and not what I expect for a gourmet restaurant. For 32 euro it was disappointing.

Kiste was really hard to find, but a nice hidden gem. The service was excellent and the pasta spectacular.

The restaurant is somewhat underwhelming for the expectations associated with a Micheline star and the price. It is OK but nothing special. The crudo appetizer was the best, while the main course fish was too dry and of the quality of regular street diner.

Beautiful spot just off the main drag. Very nice people, service, decor. The food was hit and miss and either way the portion way too small for the price charged and the rather uninspired flavor. The lamb chops were the worst. 40euros for two tiny over cooked chops, a small scoop of potatoes mashed and two tiny veggies in a brown bland sauce. The fish of the day was tasty but so tiny. The app of various fish was the winner of the bunch. Nicely presented, interesting plate and presentation and amounts.

Fresh seafood and enticing presentation in a romantic outdoor setting. Mosquitoes are a problem in July. Not cheap, most customers are tourists.

If this review was solely based on the taste of the food it would be a 2; however, the service and food presentation were incredible, so I added another star. My family and I did the 8 course tasting menu and the food was underwhelming to say the least. The chef kept a consistent theme and flavor for each dish, which would have been fine if the execution of the flavors was done well, but unfortunately it was the exact opposite. The first course should tantalize your tastebuds leaving you anxiously desiring the next course; unfortunately, each preceding course continued to disappoint leaving us only anxiously waiting for the check so we could pay the bill and go home I would avoid this restaurant if possible.

Very creative food with nice presentation. Service was good except when it came to getting the bill, then really slow.

Truly a Michelin star experience. From the service to the chefs creativity. The wine pairings were spot on. The presentation was beautiful and a very fair price for the entire experience. This will be a must every trip.

Best meal ever! Michelin quality in a relaxed atmosphere. From start to finish the dishes were masterful, in flavor and presentation. This restaurants stands out in a plethora of great restaurants. I have had the pleasure of dining at several Michelin rated; along with exceptional restaurants and this restaurant deserves a visit

Fabulous set menu, all fish, and so tried food we wouldn’t normally have. However The red mullet was wrapped in bacon. This was my favourite dish. The staff were very knowledgeable and friendly and a lovely outside seating. Highly recommend, great value.

Atmosphere and service were great. We did the tasting menu and wine pairings. The first few courses were excellent — really fresh and unique. Perhaps they raised our expectations too high — the main course was just okay. Not bad, but just a bit boring. The grouper was perhaps steamed? Not much flavor. And the sauces didn’t do much to help. I would go back and order certain dishes, but would avoid the generic fish entree.

Our family had a delicious meal, celebrating a special birthday, and everything lived up to our expectations. The service was impeccable without being pretentious and the garden was a beautiful place to enjoy such a delicious meal. Some of us had the tasting menu and others had dishes a la carte, and the timing of the dishes was perfect so that we could all enjoy our food at a perfect pace. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone for a wonderful experience

Balanced and good food, but without creativity for this price. I expected at least one highlight from 8 courses menu but I didn’t find one. Service was OK. The wine came always to late to the food.
