You can’t beat truly fresh fish. The menu changes daily for what local fishermen catch. You’ll need reservations and don’t expect to be sat near the shore. You can wait for a “window” seat to come available but you could wait a long time. You’ll...More

Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious, including the South Seas Daiquiri! The bread and butter were exquisite and I usually don't eat bread at restaurants. The little soup the Chef added was so good. The fresh fish appetizer was unique with 3 kinds of fish...More
