The food was paired well. Fish tasted super fresh. I would certainly return if I come to the area. The only issue was the selection of food, but the waitress told us the fishermen catch fish daily for restaurant and the menu changes constantly .......More

They don't take reservations, but you should have reservations about eating there!! Click on poor reviews and read carefully! So you don't upset the staff or management, and ruin your experience! Good Luck!
