The sea food at this restaurant was not fresh, the shrimp and salmon bad, the chicken and steak was ok, the servers were lack luster. I would return, but would never get any seafood again.

Great spot to #chillaxin with tapas and cocktails in between shopping. My most favourite cocktail at this restaurant is the sparkling sake.
