Great food. Very welcoming. We didn't order anything from the menu. We just asked if we could have a really big fish (for 4 ) with whatever the chef wanted. And it turned out to be great. I definitely recommend this Restaurant.

The food is like home cooking, as is the warmth of the staff. Particularly good for lunch. Modestly priced. No alcohol.
