We have eaten there twice in the last three nights. The prices aren't bad and they have a nice menu. The service is good. The salads are huge so split one with your date.

What a disappointment. Our server, when asked her fish preference, said she'd never tasted grouper, didn't like redfish and hated scallops. Oh. Okay. Lackluster slow service, very mediocre food...small fish portion served at room temp and pretty pricey. So many wonderful Galveston dining options -...More

It was a busy Saturday night, and seating was slow. No problem with that. But the noise level was deafening and made conversation impossible. Ordered fish, their specialty, and was disappointed. One dish was good, the other was not edible. Grouper was not fresh. Service...More

Nice looking dimly lighted bistro with well done indoor decor in the Strand area; All the items looked great, but the grilled shrimp and the grilled fish were outstanding! Salads were fresh with unique dressings. Good dinner place for grilled seafood dishes!
