I went there for my birthday. The food was good. The prices were reasonable. The service was effective and congenial. The atmosphere was sophisticated. The view was a perfect snapshot of the local.

We had the early-bird deal. Fair number of choice. Good service in a quiet restaurant. Right on a quay with views of fishing boats.
