“Why don't they like me?”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

When our hotel called ahead and made this reservation, they must have said, "we're sending two tourists treat them like crap." They did. The food here is simple and good. I had the grilled swordfish which was as tasty and fresh as it gets. The waiter was condescending and not very helpful. Hey, I'm not such a demanding guy. Maybe he was distracted by trying to clean the stains off the customers white shirt he had spilled food on.

“Great fish,poor service”
Reviewed 29 April 2012

Our hotel recommended this place strongly. It is known for fresh seafood. We had crayfish cocktail that was fine although under about a gallon of sauce, but good. Our waiter refused to let us sit in a window table with a reservation, explaining that it was for 4. Okay,but as we sat at our table another couple came in without a reservation and were seated at that table.
We had swordfish that was the best I have ever eaten, grilled simply. Then the waiter completely ignored us for the rest of the evening. We are not demanding or rude, and in fact are usually treated well. We could not blame the crowd, as we watched rhe same waiter fawning over others. Maybe it was something we wore?

“great fish restaurant”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

I go to dine into this restaurant every time I pass by Acitrezza: the serve the best fish chowder I ever had. Wonderful local fish perfectly cooked, the wine list is not that great but you basically can find what you need. Quite expensive.
