Went last night with a large group of friends. The chef specialty tuna was absolutely phenomenal, maybe even the best tuna I've ever had. All the other food we had was also delicious, however the waiter was rushed and got an attitude several times whenever there were only two other tables in the entire restaurant. It was very off-putting.

rustic spot too expensive - food meh. I was taken by a cabbie to this "rustic" run down restaurant. I assumed the price would be rustic too. But no and the steak was the wrong thing to ask for at a seafood restaurant

This is the best seafood restaurant restaurant in the area! For those who can recognize fresh, well seasoned, well cooked seafood-you will not be disappointed.

Seats were very uncomfortable, hot as hades with no fans to move air. Food was average. Could not wait to leave that place.

Doesn't deserve the previous reviews or its high ranking. It's quite average. Serving sizes were fairly small and the service was so so.

A pleasant spot for supper. Not a very wide selection of dishes and rather uninspiring but the fresh octopus special was good. Not exceptional value for money.

They brought my husband a tray with 2 fresh fish for him to choose, liked it so much the first time that we went out there again the second night. Should call for reservation if you want a table by the balcony, it does get a bit hot by the kitchen. Francisco is a great guy and took good care... More

I say HOT because there wasn't much air movement and with the huge grills, it was a little uncomfortable. However, the food is unbelievable!
