My friends and I were on a girls weekend and came here on our first night in Pacific Grove. We loved the selection. Really.... something for everyone. The wine we chose was excellent. It's a bit pricey.

Whether you have brunch or dinner, this charming restaurant provides French flair and Mediterranean flavors. The COUSCOUS LAMB SHANK ALGEROIS was fantastic! Lamb shank, lamb sausage, couscous, and plenty of vegetables. Just remember to save some room for dessert.
