Very good quality local food however not a restaurant for families. No children's menu or high chair or any effort to make us feel welcome. Took over an hour for food to come but when it did, it was delicious.

Dinner with two other couples. Menu quite good, reasonably priced. Portions good size, scallops, beef bourgignon and lamb shoulder very good. Chowder ordinary. Wines quite expensive. Service friendly but not overly efficient, new waitress.
