I had the salmon with basmati rice and the best beets ever. The bread that came with the meal was delicious as it was served with a warmed garlic. The waiter was helpful, attentive and just so sweet.

Went with friends for late lunch; not packed we were seated by the window overlooking the ocean. Food is also good, served just on time. I liked my fish tacos but its pretty average taste wise. Reasonable price.

It was a quiet Sunday evening so we were able to be immediately seated on the patio. They had several heaters going to take the chill off the air. Service was very prompt, helpful, and friendly. Our food arrived very quickly and was quite tasty....More

Fter walking around town decided on a cup of soup ad a drink. Reviews looked good so gave it a try and there was parking off street available. I had a Margarita and bowl of calm chowder was great, price was reasonable, and good service.
