We loved this place so much we went back twice. The food was exceptional, particularly the fish and the owner is a wonderful host. She even re-opened the kitchen for us on our first late lunch visit. It’s a real neighbourhood gem.

Enjoyed our dinner at this casual seafood local restaurant. Great food and good portions but a little pricier than expected. Service was very good and menu was varied. Daily specials also available.

This restaurant has been around forever. Every 2 years I always insist on visiting this cosy little seafood specialist.. We just love the specials board and the fish tastes good and fresh. It is a little pricy but I will always return

I had lunch today, attracted by the great reviews I read. Sadly, the food is just ok and overpriced. The place is nice, service was excellent, but the food was “normal”... not outstanding at all... I do not recommend the place ...

I e-mailed. Lady owner responded but late saying TripAdvisor kept giving e-mail address for reservations despite her saying it should be by phone. She was very nice and i did get a cancellation. Bottom line is use phone.

Quite close. From MQ to main road, turn left, about 200 meters turn right and it takes 10 to 15 minutes easy walk. The guys at MQ will give you a map if you ask them. It’s worth going, it really is
