It was all very good except the veal t bone which was tough and fatty. The service was A plus as were the other entrees, desserts, salad dressings, mussels and particularly the chicken pot pie. Old place but new cuisine. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our dinner and drinks. All very reasonably priced for the quality. The rack of lamb and rockfish were both excellent. Ambience perfect. Long Island iced teas the best! Mussel appetizer was delish as well. Can't wait to return.

Hadn't eaten here for over 40 years...what took us so long? Service was attentive, atmosphere was casually elegant and relaxing, food was attractively presented, well composed and very flavorful. Wine, beer and cocktails were enjoyed...just a fabulous experience!

From Atlantic City, NJ, USA to Madrid, Spain it is 5927 Kilometers, or 3683 Miles, or 3200 Nautical Miles. From there it is a short 313 mile hike to Barcelona!

Old world charm meets new world hospitality in this lovely lakeside landmark. A longtime locals favorite serving award winning classic continental cuisine with a modern flair. The restaurant, resurrected from an uncertain future in 1997 by the combined efforts of the Coppola & Bushar families, has since reclaimed its spot among the favorite dining locations in the Atlantic City area.
