A grill restaurant serving a good mix of local and international dishes. Nice, modern interior with an open kitchen. Quite surprisingly, a fairly big selection of seafood dishes is offered as well. Brunch is served daily until 3 p.m., and all the portions are huge. A perfect spot for a hungry group.
