A very characterful place to have lunch from a balcony overlooking the street, watching the world go by. A very friendly welcome from the proprietor and efficient service. Food was well prepared and presented and flavoursome. Highly recommended.

The food and drinks were most excellent. Lots of terrifically prepared seafood and specialty drinks. The owner, Anna Marie, was a fantastic host and made us feel like regulars. Highly recommended.

Food and service are ok, but beware of the conversion to US dollars! Math is incorrect in the restaurants favor, big-time.
