The restaurant was full of locals. A mix of business people, friends and tourists. Most people came for the fish as nearly every table were eating fish of some description.

Lot's of locals, which is usually a good sign. Simple restaurant, attentive staff, fresh seafood, lots of choices, a few good white wines, a lot of movement around and locals telling you what to eat, so an interesting meal!
