A special eatery if you love fish. The service is excellent and the menu extensive, the specials board offers a superb choice alongside the main menu. Do not miss this great restaurant if you are visiting Harare you will not be disappointed.

Great Restaurant, prices to suit every pocket. Obsessed with the seafood linguine, it's really really delicious! The blue cheese salad with pears was for the whole table, next time I won't share! Definitely worth a visit.
