We love the fish soup served with the chips when you first arrive. Then dig into the variety of dishes. The seafood plate was so big we took half home. Prices are good here and the service was very excellent.

Enjoyed this restaurant, even after the 30 minute wait. My husband and I had the shrimp en chipotle and fish in chipotle. The seafood soup was wonderful and my daughter loved the crab fingers. This is a must visit!
