The lobster bisque was excellent! We also had the Stuffed shrimp! Stuffed with crab and they were amazingly good. Would highly recommend this place. Ambiance A+ sits right on the ocean side with spectacular views.

Hi Bocolito. Thank you very much for your visit and at the same time we regret the misfortune of the storm, because the restaurant, being on the seashore, we depend a lot on the weather. We will wait for you :)

This restaurant is on the shore of the ocean. It is wide open and only has a roof. It's great ambient. Food is good and not expensive
