We took our visitors here last week and they were smitten with the place. The atmosphere is so cozy and the Fish & Chips and Tzatziki Fries are fresh and yummy. It's too bad they don't have cocktails anymore. And the waitresses are getting a...More

The food is simply amazing! We had the tuna steak and the tuna burger and it was just perfect. Although we had lots of rain, the evening and the atmosphere was great.

First stop for ceviche - pickled seafood - better than it sounds! Take a seat, order and enjoy the lively local atmosphere.
