One of the few places outside larger hotels to enjoy a good hotel of wine with dinner. Food was very good with plenty of local fare. Sitting outside was nice and staff was very good.

The lemon mint drink got me hooked, the best in town. The seafood was fresh and always on point. We ate there more than once and the consistency of service and food was outstanding.
