Reasonably priced food with the choice of a seafood or meat dish. No liquor license so it's bring your own booze with no corkage.

The seafood, we had kabeljou, was lovely, fresh and prepared to perfection. The setting is rustic and unpretentious, ideal, as good playarea, for little people. No alcohol on menu, remember to take own beer or bottle of wine if wanted
