This is one of my favorite restaurants. The people are friendly and the food is wonderful. I recommend the catch of the day cooked in garlic. I come here year after year.

Food is fresh, fast, and delicious and the service is great too. Soups and fish fillet are excellent, and they have a large selection of drinks served in Mexican styled glasses. Located on a main street, you can eat inside or outside.
