Don't let the name of this place put you off. Calamari was fantastic and the main course tuna simply divine....We had the lemon, butter and garlic sauce. Service with a smile. This place was buzzing and once you visit you'll see why.

Go here for sunset and you won't be disappointed. Our fresh fish was pretty good, a little overcooked. But all in all a nice change of pace.
