Enjoyed our dinner very much. Service was great and food was excellent. The view was nice but the room we were seated in was very loud and conversation was difficult. I will definitely go back!

The place itself is quite nice, little small beach next door, nice outdoor seating. The food was great, I loved the oysters, the grilled sea food was average, especially the shrimps were over grilled. Main concern were the 100s of mosquitoes that were very annoying...More
