Amazing seafood and we had some delicious greens as a side dish. I highly recommend this place but do book ahead, I felt sorry for the people who... More

One of the best meals I had in all of Europe, and I'm not particularly a fan of seafood. Service was outstanding, prompt and friendly.

Great ambiance, service was top notch, seafood restaurant with fresh seafood at an affordable price. Making a reservation seems a little tricky and we were told that if you call to leave a message requesting a reservation they don't usually return the call. We stopped in early when they opened for dinner and got an 8:45 reservation that might. Sat... More

Absolutely loved our dinner here. The food was excellent, clearly it was lovely fresh produce. The service was exemplary - friendly without being overbearing. It was also exceptional value in my opinion.

Coming from Massachusetts, I've had my share of mussels. Oscars' were served in a cream sauce with chunky potatoes on the side. The mussels were sweet and plump. The... More
