What a great concept: skewers of whatever fish is fresh today, grilled and served. We had scallops and wolf fish. Simple, fresh, delicious. Service was with a smile and we felt welcome. It was a great meal.

I'm not sure if they are open on the 24th or not. I don't think they take reservations it's very informal.
