We enjoyed a bit of a break from the heat in an air conditioned place. Very lovely restaurant, we had the mahi mahi and a couple of appetizers, the prices were much lower than we expected (about $15 each for the entrees).

A lovely restaurant with limited outside space. We ate here twice and the food was excellent and well presented on both occasions. Clearly fish was a speciality. Very resonably priced and the service very good.

We ate here on our last night. I have always resisted coming here because of the air conditioning and indoor dining, figure I can get that at home.

We really appreciated the air conditioned dining for a change! My husband had a delicious shrimp dish and I had Enchiladas Suiza's with red sauce. They were good but in hindsight I wish I would have had green sauce. Great food!
