The restaurant is quaint, like a fish shack. The service is friendly and capable. We enjoyed a good meal of lobster and fish and chips.

This was not at all OK. The waiter was totally uninterested and presented the Meny as words learned. We bought ' the duchess' with salad from a plastic bag, shrimps were dry and overcooked, lobster tail was full of shell and fresh vegetables were mashed....More
