This is a brilliant Bistro, located in pleasant surroundings, serving superb high quality food. A great variety, excellent value and exceptionally pleasant staff. Both of the proprietors Laura & Michael (Chef) are perfectionists and only want the best for their customers.

Grabbed some lunch here with family. Menu was good and food was prepped and served fresh. All of us were really happy with the food. We had 2 young kids with us and the food was served at a great temperature for them. Not piping hot like some places and having to wait 5 mins for it to cool down.... More

Nice lunch, friendly staff. The mist obscured the view of Great Island. Short waiting time. Busy - always a good sign. Reasonable prices.
