Good food but the drinks were small and expensive. The whole meal drink combination was therefore of poor value since for more than $150, we didn’t have much in terms of best bang for the dollar. If a bottle of wine was included, I would consider $150 of good value but for just one drink and a basic local beer, the price paid was too much, especially since we shared an app and didn’t buy dessert.

This place is a restaurant to return to many times. The food is great, and the overall experience as well. The decor dampen the noise level well enough: something that bothers me in busy places usually. Also, they know how to cook calamari unlike most other places!
