Like in so many places, the tastiest food comes in the most inconspicuous packages and this place fits the bill. Just a basic local tavern with mind blowing flavours on your plate.

I went here for a special event mainly to have a drink or two but ended up eating here and getting to meet the owners. I have red wine by the glass and 2 seafood dishes with new friends and everything was excellent. Hope they continue to get good business and keep their prices fair.

Small, not much of an ambiance, a little bit cold- it was a chilly afternoon- , but good prices and excellent sea food, good service. Ate a lot with my partner, he had shrimp and octopus cocktail, coconut shrimp, scallops tostadas,and I had mussles in white wine, fish soup,stuffed crabs the jewel of the crown!! And, mussels of course!!!!!!. I would rate an average 9 in all the plates.

From the outside the restaurant is kind of unassuming, especially compared to it's fancier neighbors, but the food's always good and the prices are reasonable for the neighborhood. Even though there seem to be a lot of offerings on the menu, the food isn't complicated. Just fresh and tasty. Sometimes the service is kind of brusque but other than that there are no complaints.
