Seafood Restaurant
$$
“A bit off the beaten path, this hidden gem is the spot for sitting on the porch eating tapas and taking in the view of the harbor. They redesigned the outdoor area and menu last year and it now has a great outdoor bar, delicious small plates and tapas, and a great view. It's a very popular spot for brunch, and gets pretty busy then, but a sunny weekend day is perfect.”
