Food and service average. Meals are overpriced for average quality. Would not recommend. Bill for four adults and two kids with (1) appetizer and four drinks was over $300.

Thats when the chef makes her thai sea bass which was excellent. As was the crab cake appetizer and the corn chowder. Unfortunately my salmon was dry and my vegetables were burnt. Good coffee. Great views of the harbor.More

Not un-kid friendly at all, but I would say that this is one of those places that people go to for a calm, relaxing meal. So, it depends on the kids! Hope that helps a little!

Yes This restaurant is kid friendly for breakfast, lunch and dinner. However I would suggest a different restaurant for dinner such as Redamak's
