Lobster scargot a must!! Food and service were excellent. One of the best Greek salads I had anywhere. Highly recommend this place if you are in Longboat Key! My sister had the fish tacos and they were great. Nothing bad to say about this place.

Good seafood and a nice atmosphere. The other menu choices were a little limited. Like all the restaurants in the evening, we found it hard to get a seat unless we went for dinner at 4:30!

We went for lunch. Great fresh fish! However there a lot of non fish options. Nice indoor or outdoor atmosphere.
