Though this place did not live up to some of the more superlative reviews to us, it is a very good place to eat. The hostess was not at all friendly when we entered and was busily chatting on the phone with someone about a booking and never even acknowledged us or made eye contact. When she was off the phone there was no apology for the wait either. Not the best first impression.
We did want to sit outside by the water and went upstairs and had a great view of the water and a wonderful sunset. (But be aware, the mosquitoes were out in force). Our waitress was very good and friendly. The shrimp lived up to the hype and the fried platter was also very good. The portions were fine and everything was very good. We did think it was perhaps a bit overpriced; but it was close to where we were staying and after a long drive we decided to go somewhere close by. Weather permitting, my advice is to try and sit outside, but watch out for the mosquitoes!
