Some of the special offerings include shrimp salad on a croissant, grilled Jamaican jerk-seasoned Australian Barramundi, and grilled Atlantic salmon. While these delicious meals taste great on their own, they taste even better when paired with a refreshing drink, such as the cool cucumber mojito! While enjoying a romantic dinner with your loved one, you may even catch one of the restaurant’s live bands.
Another nearby option is Soho, where the food is great and the lounge not only offers a cosmopolitan atmosphere, but it is located just two blocks from the ocean!
