It's a nice place for dinner. Quite, good atmosphere, service is good and fast. The food was very nice specially for fish. The only thing not very good is the price: a bit expensive.

The service and food was amazing. We wanted a more quiet dinner so we asked that our table be put upstairs and it was. The server was beyond kind to all of us including our kids and everything was delicious.

A very nice place with a fresh local fare. Very attentive staff and not as pricey as some of the other restaurants. The lobster macaroni is fantastic as well as the chocolate cream desert.
