After fishing on a boat for 4 hours we were able to bring our catch to this restaurant where they prepared it 3 different ways for us. Excellent preparation with tasty sides. Able to eat our catch while looking out over the water. Reasonably priced.

Were there in March and loved the corvina in cheese sauce. The cook gave me the recipe in Spanish--not sure if I remember it correctly. My husband and I have different ideas of what she said. Any chance of getting the recipe? Thanks, Linda
