Went for brunch - it was ok. My husband really enjoyed the bloody mary made with beet juice & a pickled beet. He also ordered the mussels, and the broth was so salty!!!! He picked the mussels out and at least they weren't as salty....More

Enjoyed a lovely dinner on the patio. Highly recommend the carrot soup! Mussels were good, but I like onions in the juices. House made bread is great. Scallops, yes! Albariño wine paired well.
