found this little gem of a restaurant, a little away from the marina but more than worth the visit. a lovely husband and wife team, anabel shines front of house providing attentive though not intrusive service, while her husband provides the most delicious, beautifully presented food. A visit to the bathrooms downstairs provides a glimpse of anabel's wonderful artwork and... More
