We had lunch here and the pan fish was very food. We tried the char and red fish and it tasted very good. The service was good and the atmosphere was good too. The price for lunch was very reasonable !

We ate char, salmon,wolfish and cod and all were delicious. The wolfish is our catfish and we hadn't eaten this before. The place was buzzing and would recommend making a reservation as people were being turned away.

This place was adorable and delish! Arctic Char is a must! So well prepared- the waiter (lovely newbie from Poland) helped describe how I could recreate when I get home! Don’t miss the Lobster bisque, Apple crumble and coffee. Fab meal. If you are in...More
