Big portions, my seafood chili relleno was overstuffed with jumbo shrimp, sea scallops, fish and octopus-yum. Fried oysters were plentiful and the mojitos were very tasty. Friendly and attentive staff.

Every time we go, we at least go to this restaurant a few times. The food is excellent and Ser v ice is great. Chritian-the host- is very welcoming and has a great smile.
