Stopped in for lunch, a nice view of canel. Sat at bar, great quick service from Kerry. I ordered a crab cake and lunch special mako shark tostadas, both were great. A little too much raw onion on mako , but very tasty

Beautiful location, beachy but refined decor, and great views. The menu had a diverse selection with something for everyone. We went on a Thursday before "in season" started and there was a major misstep. We ordered our drinks - beer & cocktail - and our...More

Response from Tracy M | Reviewed this property |
