Excellent service, excellent food. Good value for the money. Nice views from the lanai. Small but quaint. Everything is made in house including the focaccia which was spectacular.

The food and service is consistently good. There are unusual dishes - for example marinated squid. It was very tasty and not your usual deep fried. The food presentation is also very well done.
