The best part of our experience was the service with several staff attending to us, giving the place a nice friendly and cosy feel. The food was very good but in our opinion our selections from their specials were overpriced.

I had the rack of lamb one night, my wife the salmon, and other menu items. Excellent and perfectly cooked by the chef. Well worth the price as the ambiance was quiet and reserved but very friendly and small town joyful.

This restaurant is highly recommended by local hotels but falls short with dated decor and tight tables. We were left standing at the Hostess podium for several minutes without any greeting or even eye contact as the Hostess answered phones and ran from table to table explaining the nightly specials. The food was good but was overshadowed by the worn... More

Like an earlier poster, hotel recommended and gave me a card for free glass of wine. I think that is why many people show up here. I saw numerous diners with same. The hostess finding a table with no reservation comes at a price. She actually asked us someone was waiting for our table when we had barely finished desert... More

We just finished dinner at this cute restaurant in the charming town of Mariposa. The hostess took her job seriously and swept us to our table. We realized we should have made reservations but had arrived early so we were seated right away. Both my husband and I had the prime rib , one of the nightly specials, which was... More

The restaurant was suggested by the hotel where we stayed and it was a good decision to go there. Not bad variety of food with meal and fish served in different styles. Each dish we chose was really good. Excellent desserts. Friendly environment with very kind and helpful staff.

We ordered grilled chicken lemon and chicken cordon bleu. The grilled chicken was pretty much just grilled chicken. The chicken cordon bleu was very tasty. The dinner salad was colorful and quite good. It took us almost 15 min to get our name on the reservation list and there was only 1 couple in front of us. I think they... More

Since this was the #1 rated restaurant in Mariposa, our hopes were high. Perhaps we expected too much, and the place was certainly busy, but we found the food lackluster and did not live up to promises. Service was great, but the "signature" onion soup was uninteresting and had very little onion or onion flavor. The baby back ribs were... More
