The best dish on the menu is the seafood soup. A bouillabaisse style soup offers mussels, fish, squid and more. It is a bit spicy....just the right amount. Served with homemade bread, makes the perfect meal.

The food was great but I recommend making reservations. Went on a Saturday evening and had to wait over an hour for seating. Not many seafood options but the food was delicious nonetheless.

I love this place. They have great happy hour and bar menus. The drinks are fantastic especially the martinis. It is a seafood house but they have great meat for those land lovers. And the service is always attentive and friendly.
