We enjoyed two meals at this delightful restaurant on 5th avenue. Carlos seated at late at closing when we were tired. Eliver blessed us with excellent service two nights later. We were not disappointed on our return. Seafood soup, ceviche and seafood pot were favourites.

The restaurant is on the 5th Ave. Fish is definitely fresh and well cooked. I had the catch of the day grilled with some vegetables.. it was delicious. The price is definitely affordable.

Restaurant is located on north end of 5th but worth the walk. Great seafood platter and octopus entree. Service is very attentive and friendly. Great sidewalk cafe ambience without the tourist distractions.
