We were told by several people to try this place. It appeared there were locals as well as tourists eating dinner. I had the shrimp and rice which was excellent. The service was fast and pleasant.

Ate here for dinner with family, no wine on the menu but the one wall is a huge wine rack so we asked and they have wine available. Recommend ordering the cheaper, less-touristy items on the menu. It seems some "specials" are double the price,...More

We enjoyed the food and the service and the pricing that we went there 4 times! Love the atmosphere and the servers were very friendly. Every meal was with salad, two entree, one beer, coffee and tea for about $40. You have to go!
