We only ate 2 dishes so other food might be better. The place was clean with 2 large TVs set to ESPN sport center with no sound or closed captions and soft rock background music. You order at the counter and then they bring the food. The staff was young and pleasant.. The shrimps were indeed large. The long slices... More

An unpretentious, moderately-sized fast-food style fish reataurant in Old Town Monrovia. Self service as in most fast food places, but given with a sincere smile and given quickly. The food itself is all fish and seafood, which is available fried, of course, but also sauteed and grilled with a choice of three different sauces. The food was cooked right in... More

What surprised me the most is that the side Caesar salad was 5 star restaurant quality. I would love to go back... More
