Food was fried to perfection. The calamari were huge. Friendly staff. Though the seating area was slightly cramped, I recommend eating by the bay.

Fish and calamari were fresh and tasty! We also ordered a potato stick which was a fun addition. Right in the centre of town so take away and eat by the water!
