I went to this restaurant with my husband today. The food was fresh and very tasty. I had the calamari with a glass of wine and my husband had the hake mornay. Really lovely food and great service! Waitresses were friendly. Would recommend.

I really enjoyed my meal here. Good friendly service and didn't wait long. The downfall is I felt my fish was frozen but it's no biggie, just a minor issue.
