We ate here on New Year's Eve, and the menu was fixed-price -- so not the normal experience. The food was fine -- dishes were very simple but tasty enough -- but the price was quite expensive. The waitstaff was very attentive though, and it was a gorgeous evening, so we were able to eat outside. There were a couple... More

We were extremely happy with this restaurant. I had the Mushroom Risotto and it was wonderful. My husband had the grilled Salmon with potatoes and said it was outstanding. The servings were quite large and reasonably priced. The service was very good. We like the fact that they let you enjoy your meal and not feel rushed.

We enjoyed a late night dinner here. Although the service was slow considering that they were not full, the seafood dishes were very good. They do not have an English menu and the staff spoke no English but we were pleasantly surprised when our orders arrived. They have indoor and outdoor seating and are just a short walk from the...
