Excellent food, service, view, wines, ambience... Just perfect for a special night! The chef recommendations are delicious, the bread is very good, try the oysters with honey sauce, the octopus, the salmon, and the steak.

Thank you for your interest in John Davenport. Our recommendation for dinner is business casual, no jacket required. More casual attire for breakfast and lunch is common practice and welcomed.
