Outstanding happy hour menu including seafood and Italian dishes which taste great. Servers are over the top. Can easily make a meal of it, which we have more than once, especially with happy hour running until 6:30.

The Happy Hour is fantastic. Great prices for wines and sherries and the special food items are available. The happy hour portions are a bit smaller, but still a bargain. All of this is in the bar area and the bar staff is excellent.

Very nice and tucked in the fish market area. No views but in a neat old section. You walk down a ramp to get in the bar/restaurant. We are in the bar area and had great service. I had the seafood cioplla (spelling?). Excellent!
