I ate here over a decade ago and was extremely impressed. This time my experience was okay. The food was good but not exceptional for the price. The service was good. I guess I just expected something better or perhaps I have higher expectations now.

Mark and I were driving around trying to find something a little different. Not a touristy place...something locals go to. We happened upon this little gem and are so happy we did! Exceptional service from our server...food was very tasty too! Thank you!

The crab tosaditos appetizer was outstanding! And we also enjoyed the seafood fettuccine. Yum. The seafood combo was also crisp, fresh and delicious.
