I went twice just to have lunch. I ordered lobster bruschetta (delicious !!) and as a main course shrimp and seafood fry. Both dishes were very good !! The only snag of the restaurant is the slowness of the service, but this can be improved.

Excellent food and service!!! Expensive but worthy. Good location, central but difficult to find parking. I'm not sure if they have valet service. Didn't use it.

We visited this particular restaurant on the 3rd of October 2015. We were about 10 people and had made a reservation in advance. Our expectations were set rather high, since the information available rather made us believe that this restaurant knew its business in seafood!...More
