We had a very enjoyable meal. The food was fresh and well-prepared and the service was friendly and efficient. If you are visiting during the busy summer months, you'll want to be sure to make a reservation.

The place is small and very popular so make reservations days in advance. The seafood was fantastic. Excellent coffee and dessert. Nice service. It's pricey but a memorable, fantastic meal.
