In 3 days we went twice. Ahi, Ono or Maji Maji, all of them cooked to perfection. Shrimps and calamari also dammed good. Sauces like tartar or tomato marinara were delicious. Service always prompt and with a smile.

Most of the places to eat in this area are not reasonably priced. You will not find a Mcdonalds unless you drive about 5 minutes away from here. However, it was our vacation, and I was happy to take my wife to dinner here at...More
