Guacamole with chips, shrimp tacos and crispy oysters were perfect! Drinks were spot on. They seated us in front of the chef and crew so we watched them prepare the meal. Very cool.

I am pretty sure they do not take reservations as this is a very very small restaurant. It basically is a couple of tables and two raw bars. I think they have a pretty quick turnover rate because of how small it is and the... More
