We go here for lunch every year, although we stay on the other side of the island. Food is good, staff if very friendly and is right on the water. A little difficult to find, but worth it!

We were invited to attend a reception for the traveltalkonline group with snack foods and special drink prices. After the reception we stayed for some snacks and drinks. My bride had the Escargot in puff pastry and I ordered a Caesar salad and pasta Carbonera. The service was excellent and the food very good. Before we finished the meal, the... More

The location of this place is great, adjacent to the hotel, so if you stay at that hotel, the restaurant is extremely convenient. The food was excellent, service was great and they even had a live band. Portions were big, the dessert was huge and so French :) Everything was perfect for a nice dinner overlooking the Oyster Pond Bay.... More

Lovely location on dock overlooking yacht anchorage at Oyster Pond. Rather pretentious menu, fairly pricey, so-so service. In our opinion it was not worth the price - especially considering other available options.

We had lunch there last week. Food was mediocre and the service was very slow.Seemed to be only one person in the kitchen preparing the meal. There are so many other great place to eat.. The setting is beautiful but I would not go back

tables are close to the boat, which is nice. The restaurant was empty on a Friday evening. They have live music on Saturdays.

Great selection during their buffets on Saturday night and Sunday brunch. Often a fish soup or bisque with all the trimmings (french bread croutons, grated emmenthaler cheese, dollop of a type of mayonnaise) as one of the many starters. They're famous for their elaborate raw fish offerings: sashimi of mahi mahi, tuna, salmon. Main course table is also excellent with... More
