The grouper and swordfish were particularly fresh and delicious. All of us had great food and we would definitely go back again. The sautéed spinach had just the right amount of garlic and the broccoli was crisp and tastily seasoned.

No, they are across the street from the beach, but the view is blocked by the condos. Easy walk across the street, though. The food is so worth the trip!
