We had the mussels and paella. Very good. I don’t like red sauces with seafood so Nathaniel was kind enough to have the chef do the mussels in lemon, butter, garlic sauce. Also have tapas on the menu. Prices average.

Palm Passage is a walkway as opposed to a street. There's a big "Palm Passage" sign at the waterfront end. A map would be helpful here.
