If you are a foodie, you will like. If you like chains like Outback you probably won’t. This is my favorite in Sandusky. It’s downtown with a pleasant environment and good service. But most importantly the food is good. We had several tapas style appetizers...More

Went to celebrate our anniversary while visiting Sandusky. Food was very good...tried a variety of specials. Drinks & drink menu lacking. Desserts not as unique as the entrees. Bill came to $130 for 2 with 1 drink each.

Lovely restaurant in quaint downtown Sandusky right near the lake. Varied menu that worked for vegetarians and meat eaters, and friendly attentive service. Loved the pizza and salads. A very happy surprise to find such a high quality restaurant in this small town.

Great atmosphere and food. Top 10 best meal I've had. Foie gras was awesome as was the duo of duck. I highly recommend you go here if you are anywhere near Sandusky or are in town on vacation. You won't regret it.
