We sat here on a lovely sunny afternoon with a good beer. The barman with the french accent was nice but the others just seem to totally ignore us. Even we I said hello to the lady bartender, she ignored me. We didn’t feel welcome...More

Came here for a quick lunch, the service was great, beer was cold and the seafood was awesome. However the pizza had way too much topping, if it had a quarter it would have been good.
