A great, if hidden find for tourists, but well-know in the community. They were packed with upscale crowd for lunch. Plates are huge and deliscious. Prices are reasonable.

What we ordered was good, nice presentation. Reasonable price. No menu, just choose from the pates offered that day. VERY small non-alcoholic drink selection. Didn't even have bottled water.

The location is a bit far from the city area so there are fewer people. The fish is really good and the price is fine. The night view is very relaxing for couples or family union.
