Maybe it was just an off night? I had the ribeye staak and it was average at best. Service was fine but the restaurant was almost empty (at 7PM) which I didn't take as a good sign.

Seafood main courses were very well cooked, very well presented and very tasty. Only criticism - a little over-complicated, with a lot of extra elements to the main dish when the fish itself was already outstanding. Service was friendly, well-informed, and at a very relaxed...More
