The asparagus salad was a great beginning to the main. We had the seafood medley for two and the medley of shellfish and the octopus was tender and tasty. The service was fantastic and the ambiance was welcoming and the service crisp, inviting and exacting. A wonderful experience for the two of us

Accueil, plat et service très bien.
Le préparation du poisson (morue noire) était impeccable. Niveau sonore assez élevé, la conversation n'était pas toujours facile.
Portion (midi) très petite pour un prix à l'avenant.
