“Enjoyed it”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

There are reviews that speak poorly of the new location. I guess if you don't like views of the water, cold beer and eating delicious tuna, well then don't go. If you do like all of the above, then this place is totally worth going. It's easy to find and everybody was friendly.

“Great all 'round fare - good service. They have moved to Marina.”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

This became a 'staple' for our group. Great big menu with selections for ALL from the 4 year old who only eats chicken fingers to a very nice Paella!

“They have moved!”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

To the beautiful Marina Pez - just outside of town. Ambience is different, food still great. Would have bought some t-shirts but they didn't have any.

“Beautiful spot!”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

Excellent restaurant right on the marina - great food, friendly staff, first class! We went there for Valentine's Day and had a wonderful dinner. Outside a huge blow-up screen had been erected where we got to sit and watch "50 First Dates" after dinner - fun evening!
