Great happy hour - music on Thursdays to Sunday. Good salads, pizza and wine with terrific arancini as appetizers.

The ambience and décor are very good, the old stagecoach house is awesome. Food quality and presentation are good. Prices are too high for the offering, even considering the location.

The decor sets the tone for the fun tapas style menu and interesting cocktails, something different to all the other eateries. Fun, but professional, this is the total package for a lovely evening.

A little pricey, but very worth it. I had the whole baked fish, and my daughter had the scallops. Both are one of those meals you will remember fondly for a long time. Restaurant is comfortable and pretty. Server was friendly and attentive. Great experience!
