This is another of a great number of good, fresh sea food. it is less commercial than Fisher's being a bit more towards a mid to high end restaurant. The oysters are VERY good as are all local fresh catch such as sea bass, red snapper, and mahi mahi to name but a few. DON'T go for imported or farm fish such as Salmon (farmed) or sole (importes) because nothing can surpass a fresh local wild caught fish. Wine selectios is reasonable as is service.

I liked this restaurant. We have been served some fish dished pretty good. One of the guests was a frequent visitor of the restaurant and recommend some nice plates.
Of course they serve meat also but we stuck to the fish.

The service is ok. May be a bit slow, due to the attendance.

We had lunch there and it was fantastic. The food was amazing and the bontanas, no words. Their tamarind margaritas are very refreshing and if you go there ask to be seated out in the backyard terrace. Fabulous!!!!

Had reservations for dinner. Asked to be sat in terraza so we can smoke. Nice outdoor seating with ceiling fans. Bar is also there. Looked sleek and rich.
The terraza walls looked scummy like a cheap bar with many photo frames. The other wall where tv hung was bare except for a metal hanging.

The service was fantastic! Greeted you w/ placing napkins on lap, getting your drinks quick. Constantly changing ashtrays, always maintaining table.

Drinks ordered at our table was gin and tonics. Very refreshing. Came with grapefruit slice and cucumber peels. Even the way they served it was fun to see how they pour tonic along the swirly long spoon.

Food ordered was mushroom rissotto which was out of this world. Buratta which was clean and light with roasted tomato. Sushi of various fishes which was standard along/ wasabi and ginger.

Mix bread delivered complimentary.

Very casual atmosphere yet lively w/ patrons there.

I encourage you to try this place.

Fantastic experience. The tuna burger is something to order. It is very difficult to choose because everything is very good.
