We were recommended this restaurant for beautiful fish & we loved our visit! The open kitchen really adds to the atmosphere & the quality of the fish especially the Sardines, Turbot & Dover Sole is excellent! You definitely need to book, people know how good this place is!

The chef special (sea bass with white asparagus) was terrific. The kitchen is open to the dining room, which is fun to see. A bit on the expensive side, but tasty food, nice atmosphere, and good service.

We had a great seafood meal at this vibrant restaurant and were extremely delighted with it. Our waiter was extremely patient translating the menu, explaining the food and offering suggestions. We were served two complimentary starters which were sensational and opted for two different entrees, one clams cooked in an extremely tasty broth and the other one of the specialties... More

I had mussels to start which were lovely then the sea bass for mains which was just wonderful. The white asparagus in the dish was exceptional and the fish cooked perfectly, staff very pleasant and ambiance great. Would definitely go there again, highly recommend it.

A real treat! This is a friendly informal place with a fish perfectionist running the kitchen. We had perfect small sole (solettes), wonderfully fresh shrimps and irreproachable desserts. Getting a table on a busy night took ingenuity but was well worth it.

Just had an amazing dish of fish & asparagus for tonight's specials. Waiters are friendly and articulate enough to explain everything on the menu! Beaware though, they only accept up to two credit cards per table.

Absolutely enjoyed this place. The whole area is great, the lay out of the restaurent is contemporary/ cool, and, more importantly the food was well prepared, and well balanced. Service was good. Point of improvement: Better selection of spirits. Pretty certain that I will be back here.

The sea platter was exceptional! As was the tarbot on white asperagus. One should not take steak at a fish restaurant. Well cooked, but meat was very lean, so a bit chewy.
