The food here is amazing. They have the best fish here, soup and chicken dishes. In fact, all entrees are very good and authentic. Fresh and so delicious.

The interior of this establishment is very nice, but not upscale, as the prices would indicate. Dining al fresco in the summer is quite nice, but the view is not the best. The service both times that I have dined at Phonecia has been excellent...More
