My wife and I enjoyed a good evening at the bar while being waited on by Christa! She was friendly, helpful and attentive as our barfender/waiter. All of the other staff were excellent too. We shared the calamari, the tuna tartare and the brie--- all well presented and tasty. We have been to the bar a number of times and... More

I don't usually like places like this, because you sacrifice good food for a good view and atmosphere. The lunch menu is somewhat limited. My wife and I stopped in for lunch on a week day afternoon. We sat upstairs on outside patio. There were a lot of interesting things to look at and talk about over lunch. I had... More

Had a wonderful birthday dinner at this place. Ambiance is terrific-you look out over the bay watching boats and birds go by. Moonlight setting was a big plus too! And Zene, our waitress, was excellent. Try the shrimp appetizer or steak. It was a great meal in a great FMB location. Parking was no issue either. Looked like a great... More

Very good dining with GREAT views of the beach and water. A bit more "formal" than others locally. Staff is VERY attentive

Nice location but pricey for the quality of food. Waiter was good but better suited for a beach bar than a fine dining restaurant. Always baffling why a hostess seats guests on top of each other when the place is half full. Wouldn't eat here a second time. Better options in FMB.

We had lunch with our 2 children based on recommendation from lonely planet. But it was great! Nice scenery, perfect service and great food. We really liked it! I had the lobster burger and my wife the shrimp pasta. Absolutely good food. Only comment that it is a bit pricy, especially for the wine, but guess that counts for all... More

Very nice and relaxing atmosphere right on the bay of one of the channels leading out into the coast. Got the two lobster tail meal and was FANTASTIC! Service was average, could have been a little better. But the food made it worth every penny!
