I want to point out that I've never eaten at this restaurant, I've only purchased fish from the fish market counter of the place. My wife and I bought fish here three times to cook at our rented condo and I was very happy every time, and the prices seemed very reasonable. If you have space in your room or... More

The marina view is really nice. Food was good. Service was excellent. I would suggest reservations, as it can get very busy.

We bought fresh fish here a few times during our week stay and were very pleased with their selection. Not a huge selection, but just what we were looking for. The had Mahi, Grouper, Snapper, shrimp, crab, scallops and maybe a few others. Friendly service and good prices for fresh fish! Easy to find and would definitely recommend. Didn't have... More

The atmosphere is relaxed with a great water view, the food is excellent, and our server, Kelvin, was fun, informative and very good at his job. We had scallops and ahi tuna and they were perfectly cooked. It was late when we left and had trouble getting a cab. Jimmy the manager stood outside and tried to hail a cab... More

A large building dockside with its own dedicated dock so handy if you're moored in the bay or outside. We hadn't made reservations but managed to get a table early on and a good job too as it was full soon after and its a large restaurant! The bar was also busy - I suspect with waiting diners. Many of... More

I went there alone for lunch, I sat near the bar(water view) I felt very relaxed and comfortable. I had the catch of the day, pan seared wahoo (lemons) and seasoned rice with green lettuce. To say I enjoyed it was an understatement! But the best part was my dessert. I usually don't get dessert with lunch but it sounded... More

Thinly Sliced Sushi Grade salmon Drizzled with Fresh Lime Juice, Olive Oil, Capers, Sea Salt, & Pepper; and served with hot bread and butter...fabulous It was so delicious, we sent the men back to...
