Perfect little seafood restaurant on a nice square adjacent to the historic fish market stalls/ art market/ dance square. All very well prepared with friendly service. Outside seating, off the beaten path, still right in the smack of things. Go early for best selection. Just...More

Dined here for a birthday celebration and was certainly not disappointed. The ambience, the meal and the service were all delightful. Really enjoyed my various fish courses as did all our party. Heartily recommend this wonderful restaurant.
