We came based on Trip Advisor reviews and were very pleased. I had a special with yellowtail snapper and shrimp over risotto and both the fish and the shrimp were cooked to perfection, not overcooked as is often the case at seafood restaurants. My husband had the tower and liked it but not as much as my fish. I got the gazpacho because of other reviews, but I found it had too much sauce for the amount of chopped vegetables and it was primarily cucumber. The fried calamari was a good appetizer - not overcooked and with a unique slightly sweet batter. We had flourless chocolate cake (very good) and key lime pie (amazing and not over-tart) for dessert.
The restaurant has heavy traffic at the bar with a good number of locals eating there. We sat outside which was not particularly scenic but was relaxing and we were able to chat with one of the owners, who was greeting patrons and passers-by.
Beer list is simple but varied. Wine list is a little more extensive. No mixed drinks.
We will definitely be back but will stick with the fish and dessert.
