The service was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient; the fish and shellfish were excellent,...More

I've been to this restaurant twice now, both times in a very large group and yet they've still managed to accomodate us. All the food was excellent (oysters, pate, mussels) and the bill was very reasonable considering the quantity of food and wine we had....More
