Good food freshly prepared. Atmosphere is a bit noisy when all tables are filled, we were there on a Friday night & didn't have to wait. The restaurant is small but prices were very reasonable for the quality of food.

Good fresh fish choices plus a meat for the carnivores. Very casual. Some decent wines. Service was ok too. Don't go out of your way but a good local joint.
