Food is ok, fresh ingredients, but for the price I would expect more. The worst is that they don't respect reservations. The best: the service, friendly people.

It was delightful from our window table, watching the sunset with the beautiful bridge in the foreground and seeing fishing boats come into port and unload. Small thing, but I was impressed with the large fabric napkins; nice to have when eating seafood. The waiter...More

It's on the spendy side in all honesty for what kind of dinner set up it is it's very reasonable , it's for good quality food. You pay for what you get in other words. It's seriously amazing and totally worth every price.
