Stumbled upon with my family new to area. We had the picadinho as appetizer(not on dinner menu) but waitress said they would accommodate! followed by chicken in garlic and paella. It's a byob which is even better! Highly recommend and even has a band who plays requests on weekends. since then have been back twice with others, same results!

We eat here regularly and enjoy it. A family run restaurant which is friendly and accommodating. Sat night entertainment with singer Bill makes the visit even more fun.
A great variety of entrees and all have been flavorful and interesting. I We

Who would have thought that a shore restaurant would be so good! The mariscada was full of succulent seafood. The paella a Espanhola was perfectly prepared and full of lobster, shellfish and chicken. The tilapia was perfectly prepared and the spices did not overshadow this light fish.The desserts were excellent.
We were not rushed at all and enjoyed bringing our own wines.

I ordered Mariscada from the lunch menu. It was so fresh and delicious I was using the rice to soak up the tomatos. Can't say enough about this place.
