I thought this restaurant had a very nice atmosphere that you couldn't find anywhere else. The rooms were lit by candle light and the old wood walls were written on by previous customers.

Had lunch there today. Hake and calamari combo. Ordered grilled Hake. Got served some form of battered grilled hake. It was the worst I have ever had. Nothing fresh about it. Calamari was over cooked. Chips awful. Over priced Will never see me again!!!!!!!

Very casual, unassuming harbour restaurant offering awesome fish and chips and other seafood at reasonable prices. All meals were fantastic and we left feeling quiet content.
