We sat outside in a nice quiet street away from the buzz and high prices. We both had fish soup accompanied by garlic bread. Then we had Scabard fish and finally egg pudding. Flavours were great, portions small but adequate and value amazing. Strongly recommend.

We as stopped here and had the Scabbard fish with Bananas. The fish was deliciously prepared in the restaurant’s version of a local favorite — filleted, fried, and then cooked with bananas with passion fruit and some almonds to give it a nice crunch. Served...More
