The restaurant came highly recommended. We went late afternoon. The service was good and the food had a good flavor, but the cost was much higher than expected. Portions were small for the price.. if portions larger, the price would not have bothered as much.

Sorry I can't help either. Call the pier is all I can say. Don't remember seeing any animals on the pier when I was there.
