Ive been looking for good fish tacos for ages and we finally found them here. This place is great. Very inexpensive considering the places nearby, the food was amazing, service was good. I would recommend the scallop taco with cilantro creme.

Family outing with various food offerings for our party. I sampled fish and chips and found them as close to the original (UK) as I'd wish. Friendly service. A tad pricey, but not overly so.

A large group was seated quickly, there was excellent service and we really enjoyed our meals. The mahi tacos, fish and chips, salmon salad and crab cakes were enjoyed by all. One of the best Key Lime Pie slices I ever tried!!!

Thank Sharon D
