We visited with 2 young children aged 6 & 3 years, we didn't book so we were very lucky to get the last available table. The waiting staff were very welcoming and we weren't waiting long before our order was taken. The food was delicious and plenty of it, I would certainly recommend this delightful, little restaraunt!

Very friendly staff and a talented kitchen team add up to a small but perfectly formed dining experience. We both had a different fresh seafood dish and we would definitely recommend this eatery to anyone and intend to visit again soon. Good value... Cash only though.
