We tried seafood and fish dishes. They taste fantastic. Kids friendly with well mannered staff. This is not a cheap dining but you are paying for a good quality food.

The starter of fried calamari and soft shell crab was good but the main meals were very mediocre. The 200g steak was very poor. The pastas were ok. Nothing to brag about.
