An excellent place to enjoy seafood overlooking a creek in a relaxing atmosphere. Being able to eat outside, in fine weather makes a visit here a real pleasure.As well as offering oysters in half a dozen ways including au natural and Rockafeller their all seafood menu avoiding any threatened species includes the likes of Seafood Chowder and Home-Cured Gravadlax among its starters.
Perhaps to be followed by Grilled Local Black Bream, with Leeks, Bacon and Saffron; Roasted Ray Wing, with Beurre Noir and Capers or Monkfish with Chorizo Sausage and a Tomato and Basil Sauce.
Crab and Lobster are offered in various ways as is the whole hog of a plate of Fruits de Mers although its wise to give prior notice to give them time to assemble the goodies.
