Great view, good service. Fish soup (Podole} excellent. Margaritas ok. Value for price ok. We would return, but only for happy hours. Go elsewhere for dinner.

Attractive property with good views of the shipping channel. Margaritas were excellent. Food was acceptable. Service was frequently absent. Probably won't be back or recommend to others.
