Good location very near the main canal. The decor is very average and so is the food. The presentation is nothing special and so is the taste. Big portions ,a bit tasteless. Price : moderate

We tried the eel appetizer and it was amazing (asked for it twice). Seafood mix with rice for the main course was very tasty and delicious.

With only 24 seats you need to plan ahead, but, it is worth the effort. Personalized service in a comfortable setting but the food rules here. Knock out shrimp (gambia) rice, octopus salad and really well prepared soups. Lots of grilled fish options with a...More
