    Don't come here on weekends and expect to be seated without waiting at least an hour and a half!!! And what sucks is that you can't even phone ahead to book a reservation for breakfast!! Bad idea

    One of the best grilled artichokes I've had. Excellent calamari. This place is a gem right on the beach.

    The Cuban sandwich is mind blowing... And the view doesn't suck either. If you want something lighter the crab cake salad app is really tasty but definitely big enough for lunch.

    You can now make a reservation through Open Table. And it is strongly recommended. Can be up to a 45 min + wait. Worth it but if you have littles the ressie is golden.

    Make sure you have reservations or you will be waiting a long time. Breakfast menu ends at around 11:15. After that, it is lunch, even if you were waiting before 11. Prepare accordingly!

    ask for the burger at dinner, even though its not on the menu. its delicious and inexpensive, which (theoretically) leaves more funding available for drinking. neat, eh?
