Went there to celebrate a 54th birthday. This place is somewhat hidden and off the beaten path. All of our dinners were very good with no complaints. The staff is friendly and very efficient. Loved the shot of rum to end the evening.

Que Ouest is a little hard to find (on the Captain Oliver property ) but worth the search. This small operation sits on the hill overlooking the marina. Very casual atmosphere but very serious food. Make a reservation in high season.

Setting was great and owners/waitstaff were awesome. Appetizers were delicious but main courses were so-so. Still, I'd give it a good rating my because the prices were cheap and the setting and staff were great.

This is our 5th year coming to Oyster Pond and finally discovered and tried Quai Ouest this evening. Everything was so fresh and delicious. The exotic shrimp and feta salad was amazing with lots of additional elements like pineapple avocado a sesame cake type fritter and yummy dressing. I could not finish half of my risotto with fresh chick peas... More

Our group of four enjoyed dinner here so much that we ate there two nights in a row! French attention to food is greatly in evidence here. Seafood our especial favorite.

Three of us had two dinners in Quai Ouest during our one week vacation - on first and last nights. This probably says enough how much we enjoyed this restaurant. To be more specific: - The service was effective and pleasant. The atmosphere was casual. We felt like we were invited by friends to spend an evening in French family... More

Looking for that 'in resturant' with delicious food, friendly service and local color? We had a wonderful French seafood dinner ordered off the 'maison specials' menu ...monkfish in a lobster bisque served in a pastry shell...oh, la la! I loved the wine list printed on the large label of a huge wine bottle....the friendly and efficient waitress....the small warm bar... More

Our visit to Quai Ouest was perferct. We sat by the water on a beautiful evening. This restaurant is not pretentious in any way but it is lively and fun. Our food was very good and the wine was excellent. Great value for the money.

I would give Quai Ouest six dots if I could - we had a perfect dinner under the stars, unpretentious, delicious, and romantic. It's not perfect - I could nitpick on a few things - but won't let details get in the way of having had a really lovely evening, combining the casual atmosphere and quality of a real French... More
