This place has the best seafood in town. The staff is very courteous and helpful. They offer a family atmosphere where conversations can be carried out without the loud music. The food offers are diverse and excellent. Definitely going back on my next visit.

This restaurant specializes in wood fired fish and seafood. Mangle wood is used which gives the fish a unique taste. Worth flying just for visiting this place.
