It is rare to have this fine of service in Salinas. I really enjoyed the attentiveness given. I had the blackened tilapia tostada and my husband had the fish and chips. Both were good and had uniqueness we like. We will definitely be back.

If you are visiting Salinas this is a great place to eat in the downtown area. Reasonable prices, fresh tasty food, great variety along with friendly owner(s) and staff. The lobster bisque is definitely worth it. Would visit again.

I stopped in this small restaurant because I wanted seafood. I wasn't disappointed! I had the Combo fettuccine plate and my daughter had the fried calamari and prawns. It was delicious!
