What this street-side “shack” lacks in, well, seats and servers, it makes up for with seafood and friendly service. The salmon tartare was delicious, the razor clams were so good we ordered another plate, and the calamari might just be the best I’ve ever had....More

Nice atmosphere in the open air. Loud place. Chaotic in some sense. However, enjoyable with nice food and a good cup of white wine. Good experience!

Lovely variety of great tasting seafood. The pricing was very fair for the quality too. Staff members were very helpful and kind. There is no place to sit but there are tables outside to stand whilst eating. Keep up the good work!!

Its a street restaurant with very qualitive food and really tasty dishes. The fish soup was fantastic and my favourite dish. The only disadvantage is that the portion quantity could be bigger.
