Star dish – raw red prawn

DISHES TRIED AND TESTED

On our visit, we tried the star dish; raw red prawn that was absolutely delicious! Fried Mediterranean sand eel, king crab beautiful, but good to remember that it’s an expensive dish in general. Grilled red prawns just sprinkled with salt, they are to die for.
