Located by the seaside, the atmosphere is there. Food is relatively fresh but taste could only be described as average. Nothing to really shout about. Service is good and people are friendly.

Quite a big place touching seafront & a bit away from downtown. Vey quick service & looks popular joint for big parties. Outdoor area can be windy at times. We ate variety of sea food & the price is a bit extensive but it is surely worth it.

The seafood are fresh and tasty but serving is average and bit slow. It is nice scenery eating next to seaside, listening to wave batter to the shore with breeze.
