We saved this as our special meal on our holiday. It was lovely, everything about it. The friendly staff, the crab, the shrimp, the clams, the mussels, the decore, all wonderful. The huge bucket for the rubbish made us laugh but we managed to fill...More

My husband and son liked the seafood. I had a steak and it was very tasty. Not crowded at all when we went around 5 pm but it did pick up as it got a little later.

The food was great and the waiter was courteous and very professional. I think his name was Dani. We had a great time here.
