Stumbled upon this place walking around, wonderful restaurant with very helpful and friendly staff and the food is amazing. Plus a wide choice of food in a locality where fish seems to be the main menu in most places.

We ate in their upstairs (restaurant) area. My fish was very good- it was in a delicious sauce, while my husband's rolled meat was ok. We had an early morning so didn't order dessert. Over all a pleasant experience.
