The restaurant serves everything about sea food but especially the famous lobster. The dishes are tasty, the service is very friendly. The choice of dishes is quite large. The dishes are generously served. Good mood in that place !

Hello All, Both our dining rooms are wrapped in glass overlooking the harbor. We do have a deck off the second floor but it's just a place to enjoy the view and a cocktail while we prepare your table.
