“Small portions at high prices”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

Nice location, good service, nice to be on the ocean and hear the waves crashing but.....very small portions especially for the prices. Our first appetizer which I split with my husband was a sea bass ceviche. It came on a very large plate with maybe four forkfuls of food, no crackers or chips to put it on. Next came crab cakes, three medium size at $22 and very tasty. Our seafood salad was next and extremely small. We were with another couple who ordered an entree of cod. The cod was very good but again it was a small portion on a large plate and nothing else on the plate. While the service and location was good the portions were too small for us to come back here again. We ended up going home to eat some almonds and fruit just to get full.
