Oysters are fresh and tasty but overpriced at $5 / piece. Wine was very average. Won’t recommend the place.

Neat to the Ace Hotel is good for oyster lovers . The also have a pre fix lunch menu that is very good. Is all about seafood. The haddock fritters with the curry dipping mayonnaise are very good. The divers scallops with salad are ok.
