Fresh fish and shellfish arrive daily from local fishermen, creating, with certainty, a peak of individual interest or the ideal fare for a special occasion. All of which may be enjoyed with an ideally selected aperitif an impeccably paired wine, and concluded with a digestif from the wide selection on offer.

    Arrived at the restaurant and waitress came over immediately and asked if we wanted a drink but we were yet to look at the drinks menu so asked for a few more minutes, then no one came to our table for half an hour so it was quite a wait before getting a drink. When the drink arrived it was wrong so I didn’t drink it. Some bread was brought over to our table which was lovely but once we’d finished the table wasn’t cleared before our mains arrived. We ordered the two vegan options on the menu, I had potato skins with vegan pulled pork which was dry and just not very good, also found a hair in the food. My friend ordered the vegan steak which was really good and she enjoyed it. For desert I ordered vegan pannacotta which was also not very good and it had a strange rubbery texture. One waitress we had was lovely and attentive as much as she could be, but they did seem understaffed. The rest of the staff appeared very stressed and abrupt (understandably given the apparent understaffing), while we were there multiple plates and glasses were dropped which led to staff visibly arguing with eachother infront of customers, this gave an uncomfortable atmosphere. The taps in the toilet also didn’t work. I didn’t complain about the food as couldn’t be bothered with the aggro and just wanted to get out of there, so can’t say what would’ve been done to put the situation right. I asked for the cocktail that I ordered and was sent to the table wrong to be taken off the bill as I hadn’t drank it due to it not being what I asked for and they gladly took it off the bill, as I said most of the staff seemed nice but very stressed and you could feel tension in the restaurant. It’s rare I write reviews/complain but I had high hopes of this restaurant due to it being one of the more expensive and exclusive restaurants in the area and was disappointed. The setting is pretty and it is nice that the tables look out onto the sea, but for the reasons listed above I wouldn't go back again.

    From start to finish, our experience at Paranga was fantastic. Dominic & Nicolas are a credit to this establishment. We were celebrating a special anniversary that was not overlooked . The food was excellent, and the recommendations of Dominic of the Fritto Misto and the Misto Mare paired with a decent Prosecco made for an outstanding meal. Service was unlaboured, and the restaurant was buzzing. However the food although outstanding was outshone by Domonics service and attention but not just to us but to all he attended to. I cant speak for others but we had a great time and a great meal. 5*

    It was an amazing experience. The place is beautiful, especially in the sea sand tables. The food is amazing. We ordered the lobster and the fish grill, and was really tasty. But the best is the staff, especially Pryia and Vicenzo, and the lady in the entrance. They do my birthday special. Tks to this amazing staff.

    The food took about two hours to the get to the table but the service by the staff made it all worthwhile. Be prepared to wait.

    Food was good, Great atmosphere but service was super slow. Took ages to order another bottle of wine, almost finishing the meal without it, 20min with empty plates in front of us, 15min to get desert menu, then further 20min for desert to come. Waiters were super nice, but the floor wasn't well managed. Expecting next time will be better.
