Unfortunately, I feel like this place really ripped me off. They don't take credit card (I'm sure by choice to avoid the cc fees) and are not upfront about it. Worst part is the exchange rate they charged me. The rate was a 15% discount...More

Great location, nice cold drinks, perfect place for sunsets. They make an effort to provide cool evening programming like a fire dancer or live band. Didn't love the calamari, but who knows, maybe the rest of the menu is good.
