This restaurant was highly recommended by the staff at our hotel. Since it was close, we gave it a try and we were very happy we did. We started with the Mussels soup, which they split for us in the kitchen. I ordered the fried...More

This was our last chance saloon tonight. We'd walked out of one restaurant for poor service and lack of menu items and another for simple random food choices. This place was great. We waited a few minutes to be seated in what feels like a...More
