We ate in the enclosed porch which was beautifully decorated for the holidays. Located across the street from the ocean, it was a little disappointing that we couldn't see it in the dark night, but the atmosphere was so pretty we didn't mind. The calamari...More

Had an opportunity to enjoy lunch at Bareli's. If the location across from the water isn't enough to entice you then perhaps the historic building and fresh menu filled with local seafood choices will. This place is a must for anyone who is in the...More
