One of the best restaurants found while walking around in the city. Make it a must to try their lobster soup and then you can choose from the variety of seafood skewers like scallops, salmon, cod on skewers.

Simple fish kabobs you choose yourself. We also had two different veggie kabobs to go with the fish. Lots of fish choicest and without a doubt the freshest fish I have ever eaten!!!

I'm not sure if they are open on the 24th or not. I don't think they take reservations it's very informal.
