The fish was fresh and tasty, and the coffee was served with a froth on top and sugar, no cream. Very, very tasty. Open air setting with a live duo playing lively but not overpowering music for the guests.

Cozy and almost romantic atmosphere with nice guitar and singing. Had the pasta bolognese which was quite good and a reasonable size. Service was attentive. Total with two beers and 10% service charge was a reasonable 111Q.
