Food flavor was excellence, ambiance was lovely but portions were crazy small for the price. If you're looking for a place to go and have a light meal and drinks this would be a great spot.

I wasn't aware of any tv's but might have been one at the bar. We always sit either at a table or couch on the beach! You must go and check it out! We love it!
