Three of us stopped in for lunch. Small and intimate. Food was delicious and home made. This is a family operated buisness and pays attention to details.

Went there this week - good homemade food. Place is small so is a bit of squeeze, but adds to the atmosphere. Food very good. Shame that they were out of fresh fish. 5 of us with drinks was $170
