It had a good vibe even having the out area in the pedestrian. It's a good place to stop in the middle of the day to take an ice cold beer in the shadow!

So many mixed reviews, but we ate there twice, which says something. The food was creative, well-flavoured and well-prepared. Good cooking here. Tried most fish/seafood dishes and all were very good, except for a mussels garnish that tasted very sour. Steak and chicken, also good...More
