Pesce Blue on Congress St is a nice place. I would call it both casual and romantic. Italian seafood is their thing. Their website

There isn't much in the way of restaurants on the water. Poco's Bow Street Cantina has some water views. The food is OK. They do have a bar downstairs and I can recommend their margaritas.

Portsmouth is all eminently walkable, so I'd recommend you map out some time for a stroll to take a look at other restaurant menus to see what appeals to you. Don't expect lots of excellent dining experiences, though. It is mostly a tourist town. Pesce Blue is, IMHO, the best restaurant in town.

This can mean only one thing: I take it the Blue Strawbery is no more?

I would recomend 2. Lindburghs Crossing (which is in the same space as the Blue Strawberry used to be ) Or Anthony Albertos if you feel like Italian.

Correct. It has been gone for quite awhile, which is too bad. We had some excellent meals there years ago.

The Mexican/Latin American place on the water is pretty good.
