Crowded. Reservation in advance is a must. Great seafood meal, but expensive. Nice presentation, and delicious seafood. Great service. Situated on the canal with outdoor seating.

We had some really good seafood here and were able to try several different local varieties. Good service. We had a bit of a mosquito problem once the sun set, but the waiter provided some spray and incense, which was helpful.
