I returned here and was not disappointed. I enjoyed oysters as a starter and kingship as a main course - both were good and the waiters were very friendly and helpful, especially of bringing my mother who is confined to a wheelchair

Great atmosphere and great food. Items are abut pricier than other seafood restaurants but you get good value for money. Outside tables were a bit weathered but wasn't a major issue. Good experience. Will definitely go back.
