Before you even order, the hot pita and dips arrive...and arrive...and arrive! By the time you order your fish, you can't believe you are still going to eat an entire meal. The fish couldn't be fresher. They cook it to perfection. The staff is very friendly. You must go!

By chance I was in the area, lunch time. Remembering a Saturday meal I had a few months prior, I decided to try their business deal. On entering I found the place full. I got my table and ordered the grilled/fried St.Peter's fish. Prior to the main dish, fresh appetizers where bought on, lots of them. All delicious together with... More

From the moment we entered, the staff were very obliging and friendly. We were brought a tasty selection of fresh salads and bread on the house, before we placed our order. They helped us choose from the menu as we were unsure what a lot of the fish dishes were. I had scallops in a delicious lobster bisque sauce. It... More

The appetizers were so good... More
