My daughter and I were referred to this restaurant by someone at our hotel. We weren't terribly hungry so we ended up having the clam chowder, some sushi, and the seafood nacho's. The clam chowder was very good. The Mahe roll that we got was...More

We had heard a lot about this place and finally got a chance to see for ourselves. The happy hour menu had a lot to offer, we choose the steak skewers and coconut shrimp, it was the perfect amount. The arugula salad with candied walnuts...More
