We stopped here thinking it might be a tourist trap but we were pleasantly surprised. We ordered 2 grilled fish between 3 of us and the portions were huge, fresh and delicious. Lovely view, friendly service and relatively inexpensive for the location.

We ate here twice, and the food was excellent, the most tender chicken I have ever tasted. The staff were very friendly despite the fact they were rushed off their feet. They always said they would be with you in a minute, rather than ignoring...More
