This place has the finest view in P.P. The food is good and the folks are friendly. It is a bit noisy but tolerable. If it is windy, eat inside.

The food choices are a blend of local fare and some unusual seafood entrees ...and with this one-of-a-kind view of the port and bay, either lunch or dinner becomes a special event. Prices are moderate (cheap by US standards), and presentation was better than I...More
