Came here for lunch and were hesitant because there was no other customers but were pleasantly surprised. The waitress was very pleasant and recommended two different fresh fish dishes, one in their special sauce and one just broiled. They were both delicious. The special sauce...More

The seafood was great, the view was amazing. The attitude of the waiter was not the best (I understand some of the other comments about the service) but the food quality and beautiful setting made up for it fuly.

Fresh fish cooked in a simple way. We had the clams from santo Cristo for starters and grilled tuna and dusty grouper for main. Super fresh!
