We visited this place on the recommendations of friends and we were utterly dissatisfied . The calamari was oily and we didn't enjoy it. My friend's fish was over spiced and not enjoyable. Service was average and we won't be returning.

Hi, We went for a lunch and all that was available was Fish and Chips, unfortunately it was not the greatest as we were informed we must go there for good food.
