Fish and scallops were great. I usually do not order dessert but I highly recommend any of a dozen offerings. Also, nestled in great downtown with lots of stores.

We caught the last “cookbook dinner” series of 2017-2018. Everything was terrific. It was interior Mexican and we sampled ceviche, baked trout, and tender flank steak. Our dinner ended with delicious Carmel flan. Clearly this kitchen can cook! Can’t wait to return.
