Came here on a walking/culinary tour the first time. Knew that when we returned, we would come straight here for lunch. Everything was fresh, hot, and delicious. Ms. Wallace is a wonderful hostess and chef. Very small, but perfectly cozy. Easy access from the port.

We arrived at 11:30 for lunch. Advertising states open at 11:30. There were people inside, staff or owners We never found out. 11:45 doors still not open. Moved onto another restaurant. A shame reviews looked good. May try again next time we’re visiting.
