We found this hideaway last night. I really enjoyed the snapper and calamari. The service was good and the owner was extremely friendly. Must do if looking for romantic night out.

We didn't take pictures either. What you see is what you get. It is VERY nice. But you go in wearing whatever. They don't care. (They'll also give you bug spray if you need it since it is an open air place.)
