The fish were fresh however i did not sense that there is a difference from any other seafood restaurant, i thought that i would have a much different experience in seafood preparation.. not the case......

And then there's the view over the bay and the Mediterranean...The seafood was fresh, delicious and well prepared although a tat overpriced but I guess you're... More

Fish not all fresh, but everyone there did not deny it. Excellent service (unique) and kids friendly. Huge empty lobster tanks; status symbol?
