Great food and seafood in an unpretentious atmosphere. Grilled veggies and all kinds of other unusual options on the menu. Definitely worth your time!

The atmosphere is fantastic at this restaurant. Though it was a chilly evening, we sat next to the river with gas heaters running nearby. The moonlight view was beautiful. Servings are large, with an appetizer sufficient for medium-sized eaters like me!
