We had fish of the day, triggerfish, and the hamburger. Both were excellent. Wine was excellent, service quite nice. It is noisy, as others have noted. We went about 1pm and were advised 45 minute wait, but were seated about 10 minutes later. I'd like...More

While there are many, many delicious menu choices, my favorite meal is the cheeseburger and pomme frites. Probably the best I've ever had. Be sure to check out the desserts as well. Great selection of cheese and wines as well.
