This charming restaurant with a well known chef delivered a fresh three course dinner for two. Tried gazpacho with Garam Masala and it was terrific. The fish special was served over creamy risotto. The tahini ice cream completed a delightful evening.

The professional hospitality, from seating, through dinner, giving way to perfection in a uniquely prepared dish of Red Snapper, certainly would be deserving of rating Indigenous at a “10”! I found the atmosphere perfect, as indigenous exuded charm, while delivering...More
