This little cafe had a great vibrant atmosphere. The food was excellent and the coffee not too bad either. It gets busy so book ahead regardless of the day of the week.

Small portions...im an average size male,and had to go to a different restaurant after my $18 pasta meal to eat an omolette. Very dissatisfied. Also, I discovered after the meal that I could have had a side salad for only a dollar more and the waitress never said a thing. Do yourself a favor and pass on this place.

Good food and you can sit outside or inside and see the waterfront. Staff very friendly. Fresh fish. A little pricey but worth it!

Wandering Prince Rupert while on a visit recently and I found this little cafe right on the water front, lunch was served by the owner and the food, service and location were great. Chowder supremely tasty and warming on a chilly day (for me) sat outside...looking out over the bay and the little harbour. Recommend it for sure!

Food was very good with reasonable prices. Homemade pasta was awesome, and the chocolate meringue dessert was so yummy ! Service was very slow but we were in no hurry so that was not a problem.

I think this is the best Restaurant in Rupert. I've spent most of the Summer working in Rupert and this was my favourite. The Dishes are delicious, they like to create and they succeed. The Menu is small and manageable and mostly Italian. Appetizers, main Course, desserts, the Wine list all good. Staff is also very good, attentive and friendly... More

The cuisine is absolutely delicious. The view over the harbour only ads to the experience. A great find in a great small city.

It is basically a posts restaurant but do have fish. Although the fish is caught and landed 25m from the door, they price it as if it comes from the other side f the world. We feel they take advantage of the tourist in this regard.
