We had dinner here when in Richmond. Everyone was thrilled with their fish choice. I had the muscles dish which was a bit spicier than I prefer but everything was very fresh. The place is very busy every evening but staff are cordial and efficient. The fresh oysters here are wonderful and we were fortunate to have them as take... More

I suppose I got on the wrong foot when we received a very small glass of wine and a small glass of beer. We had a few small dishes to share and they were okay but also very small. Its one of these places that whe you leave you just feel ripped off

Busy place all the time, good food although fish a bit pricey - good selection of seafood. Relatively easy to get a table. Service was quick.

Two large dividing wall fish tanks were ideal to keep our young granddaughter fascinated during much of the time we adults got serious about have a lovely seafood meal. Excellent service and variety of food. Some main courses could have been a bit more generous. This was easily overcome by great dessert.

5* if you come for lunch but only 4* if you come at night. The difference is value and crowding. Yet again, I had an excellent lunch at this place and lunch is very good value. The clam linguine is excellent. The oyster shots were pretty good also. Basic but clean layout, OK staff, but it is the food that... More

Took my man here last night for his Birthday and he was not disappointed! Service was amazing (young happy blondish guy who serves us most of the night clearly loves his job and is an asset to the restaurant!). We had a raw fish platter and saganaki to start with - both dishes were amazing...especially the raw snapper mmmmm! We... More

Been several times and seafood always fresh and tasty. Good choices of styles but very crowded, bit noisy and food delivery time blowing out. Wait staff quick, so kitchen can't handle main hours.

We visited this restaurant expecting great things from the menu and price tags. Unfortunately our visit wasn't as good as we expected. We did have some great service I I totally from the waitress that served us until she finished. We ordered some oysters and wine which were both great. Following that we ordered the mussels, scallops, and the scampi.... More
