The food is good and good value at lunch. I had the Fisherman Stew, the only thing was that the Ciopinno sauce was a tad heavy on tomato, so you'd feel less the freshness on the seafood.

For the price this is a great restaurant. The location is perfect, right by the main drag and the beach with a view of the ocean. The service is excellent and the food is very good and very reasonably priced for this area. Wide range of seafoods as well as other dishes and a decent wine and beer selection.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. Very disappointing. The lobster mac n cheese was terrible. Sent it back. The mussels were terrible. The sauce not good. The chioppino just alright. They did take the mac n cheese off the bill. We will not back.
