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.
