This is a good spot for a quick lunch if you’re not looking for anything amazing. The food is average and the decor is lovely! A tad over priced for the quality of the food!

Good food, friendly service, welcome cost-plus specials. Wait staff is on-point and approachable. Location at the edge of the town makes outdoor dining (in the very small front garden) possible, though cigarette smokers will sometimes chase away. Seafood is competent and a good value.
