We go there every summer. Expensive but not much more than other P'tn eateries. Book early because it's crowded.

I came to the Mews for dinner during a weekend getaway in February. I really enjoyed the oyster app parred with the Pomegranate martini. The bread was phenomz as well! The Mews is a must when visiting the Cape.
