The service is relaxed, informal and attentive, but the starring role goes to the food, and in particular the perfectly cooked fish, the quality and quantity of which never fails to impress. We both had the catch of the day (hake) which was simply delicious, as were the chips and accompanying salad. All in all an excellent meal in a first-class waterside restaurant. Thank you.
