My dad was in town and wanted to try something different and really good. The food here was great in a quaint setting. Was too chilly to sit outside but has a very nice courtyard to try next time. Fresh seafood presented beautifully. Very well...More

This restaurant, more like a small Bistro, is small and more like a family experience. Tight quarters and a dual kitchen make for an active and interesting experience. If you want a quiet dinner don’t come here. There is a special energy about the restaurant...More
