Stumbled upon this restaurant while parking our car! We had the summer menu and it was a delicious and great value for the price we paid! The terrace was very nicely decorated!

We enjoyed the food and had dinner in the patio area. The only negative was (bugs love me) I got several bites. I did not think it necessary to wear insect repellent, so, my fault.

If you want a gourmet meal in a quiet (romantic) atmosphere, this is it. Food, presentation and service was all 5 star, but then so was the price. I had a nut encrusted mahi topped with bananas. A friend had the meatloaf which also amazing.

The steaks are AMAZING! Snapper is also very good. Desserts are good. Really good drink, beer and wine lists. Only word of caution is ask to sit inside or bring bug spray. We were EATEN ALIVE outside!
