We read the reviews and made an effort to find this and were glad that we did. We checked it out in the afternoon, one of the staff/owners ushered us in to have a look, I'm always a bit suspicious of this approach but he seemed genuine and there was no pressure. We said we would be back later, and we were, two nights in a row!
The owners greet everyone with a smile and a handshake, whether sincere or not (and I think it is) the effect is very welcoming and relaxing. Even the staff in the open kitchen smile and greet you (their fresh bread is amazing).
I think that in such a busy cruise ship port, this is a real find. Oh.and the food was great too!
