This is a very good place to dine if you love fish and sea fruits. It is on the expensive side, but quite good value for money

The service was excellent and the food was exceptional. Very good staff, some notable mentions are Ben and Mark and another male waiter who was very friendly which unfortunately didn't catch the name.

This restaurant was extremely accommodating, and graciously allowed me to dine without a reservation. It ended up being one of the best seafood meals I've ever had. Everything must have just been caught that day, was prepared with such care, and was extremely flavorful. I'd...More
