We were there for dinner, restaurant was full, service was a little slow but food was very good. Fish and shrimp were delicious. Ate some bake goods from their bakery they were very tasty.

Food is good. Some local favorites. Pizza is cooked in a stone oven. Very good. Small bakery inside the premises. Ono bites. Servers are friendly and timely.
