My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner here! Loved the ambience, the service, and the food was wonderful. Cozy and quaint. Bar was small, provided maybe 4 chairs. Dining area was set against a window with views of bay and the downtown streets of EastSound.

We had the best breakfast of our trip at this scenic little restaurant with views of the sound in Eastsound, WA. It is a delightful place with great flavors and tastes, with locally sourced ingredients that must be experienced to truly appreciate how good it is.

A little pricey, but well worth it. Excellent food was only surpassed by the friendly and efficient service.

Hubby and I had the privilege of enjoying dinner with another couple here just last night. We both had the lamb steaks which were good, but not as delicious as I remembered it to be in Spring, but still decent. The house wine was lovely. The flourless chocolate cake was tasty but heavy. Thank you for the good service! The... More

The one aspect, right away, that stood out was our very slow service. The hostess greeted us warmly and sat us immediately. Our server, Marina, took 10min to come to our table.
