The food is divine! Fresh and delicious! I had the fish tacos and they were fantastic. My husband had the halibut and he really enjoyed it and the veggies that came with it. The service is wonderful and friendly. Worth waiting if you have to. Highly recommend.

We were seated at a very nice table looking over the ocean but we waited a very long time before our waitress even greeted us. It then took forever to get our drinks and then forever to order our food and then again forever to get our food. But the check came very quickly. We ordered the fish tacos and... More

The food for breakfast was excellent and the service was also excellent. However, it costs 3 to 4 times more than you would pay anywhere else.
