The fish was delicious but the service wasn't great. Seemed a bit overpriced too. The drinks were also quite good.

nice pictures, good reviews and then you finally go there and they decide to close on a Saturday evening, not exactly good for business, took a taxi across town, their website was down, we arrived well within their advertised biz hours, FAIL.

This place has the best seafood in town. The staff is very courteous and helpful. They offer a family atmosphere where conversations can be carried out without the loud music. The food offers are diverse and excellent. Definitely going back on my next visit.
