Buzzy busy restaurant, and yet always with a smile on their faces, anything you ask from the Chef, it gets don ! How they manage this quality is admirable, no wonder its always full.. you need a reservation at weekends, or you will never get a place!

Great food and excellent service. Pick your own seafood. The menu is various to meet a lot of tastes. Take time to enjoy the bread and hummus.

Don't try any of the a la carte' options, it is all frozen fish.. Just go for the fish market and select your fishes, an advise from one waiter there and it shows why the Restuarant is so expensive
