Overall, this is a mediocre restaurant in an area with a lot of great restaurants. The appetizer salads were excellent (and they give you a massive amount of them) but everything else was just ok. For a fish restaurant, none of the seafood dishes stood...More

I have actually been here many times but this evening I decided this was the final one. I do agree that the appetizers are fun but remember you pay through the nose to have them. As for the service it was frankly rude and rushed....More

This restaurant is ok. The food is fine. The service is decent. The fish was quite good but the appetizers were only decent. The bar is almost non existent. They had alcohol but absolutely nothing to mix it with - not even a lime!

This restaurant is aimed at tourists and locals who want to be at the port. As such, it is pricey. The food, however, is good. The restaurant is loud, especially with the current "art" installation across the waterway making noise on a regular basis.

This fish restaurant has a good variety of seafood, but if you sit inside instead of outside, you risk getting a table where you hardly hear your companions. The sea bass was we prepared and the available side dishes were plentiful. The downside was it...More
