We went here for a casual date night on vacation and fell in love with the food and atmosphere! The wait can be long, but well worth it. We will definitely be back again!

This is an open air tin-roofed seafood shack with a limited menu, but wonderful food. The steamed shrimp and the grilled tuna are delicious. Prices are very moderate and service is quick once you get inside. There can be lines during the favored dining times,...More
