Stellar view and good service, but the food was mediocre and not hot. Mussel and clam appetizer had a delicious broth but the seafood was very salty. Was surprised at the lack of customers, but only one server/bartender so I guess that is the norm.

Excellent service & food & views of the Ocean. Servers are very friendly and efficient. Always something happening on the water outside giving you something to look at.

The weather was wet and windy when we ate dinner here but as all rooms face the sea I'm sure on a good weather day the view would be wonderful from the restaurant too. It is an intimate restaurant on 2 levels with a bar...More
