We were invited out by local relatives and thoroughly enjoyed this charming venue. Food was outstanding, beautifully presented, and plenty of it. Great selection of salads and vegetables. Fresh local salmon was moist and cooked to perfection. Deep fried mushrooms were not the slightest bit oily.Would definitely eat here again.

Thank SweersLyn
