Really great food but twice as expensive as I would have thought. Great service and food though. You might skip appetizer and drink. To save on the meal. Count on $50 per person no matter what.

This restaurant is open until 6pm so we went there only for lunch but each time we ate very very well.. For celiacs I can advise Octopus and grilled calamari. If i came back to Nassau I would certainly go there again..
