Have known Karen and John for a few years now - they run a top notch shop with excellent service, food, and ambience. John's creations from the kitchen are imaginative and artfully prepared but unlike other places, you get a good portion on the plate....More

Had a cajun grouper special with grilled okra, jasmine rice and tomato gazpacho. All prepared perfectly. It was a steamy day so opted for gin and tonic instead of our usual wine. Dined too early for sunset view which is lovely. Have to come back...More

An excellent restaurant with creative and varied dishes. On the second floor, but the breeze makes up for the climb. Not many tables, so plan ahead with a reservation. This is a local favorite, and well worth the visit.

Let me start by saying that I'd give this place six out of five if I could! We went on the recommendation of a family friend ... it's well hidden, but well worth the 'magical mystery tour' to get to it. Quiet and refined decor....More
