Wouldn't have found this gem without Tripadvisor. doesn't look the best from the outside but the seafood here is great. Plenty of variety and freshly cooked. Not hard to find though the sign could do with a refresh. Great service from waitron Marilees.

All reviews pointed to Freshline and we're so glad we visited. 2 baby soles, calamari tubes and a xl Mozambique prawn made an awesome lunch for each of us. Definitely a new spot to stop for us!
