Fresh fish (you can pick it out and have them fry it as take out or to eat on site). They have a variety of other seafood dishes for sit down service. Avoid the lunch rush if you’re hungry, it might be a while before you get a table.

It lives up to all the hype. Don't miss the ribs and the octopus. Ideal for a group wanting to share plates. Get there before they open to get a same day reservation and expect to wait in line a while (this only works in low season; for high season reserve as far in advance in possible via email).
