Sorry if you felt your second visit was not to your expectation. In a small town, there are factors that affect the type AND quantity of fish we receive each day. Holidays, wind, etc. affect the quantity of fish brought into the local coop’s. We...More

A gastroteca is a popular concept in the Mediterranean, particularly in Spain and Italy. Gastroteca's are comfortable, local neighborhood restaurants that feature farm to table dishes that support local producers. The décor is chic and the offerings are sophisticated. The Chef's Counter allows diners to experience the action as they see how ingredients are being used.
