I eat here regularly when in town. The food is fresh and well prepared and the portions are generous. You just can't get tuna this fresh in the States. Very friendly staff and local regulars every night.

It may stay open later on the weekends as it does serve alcohol. I believe the 11am-10pm is correct.
