Great food

Great tapas and good music. No negatives in our experience except a little slow because of music and a busy night. That was to be expected so we drank wine!!

The most aggravating dining experience ever! The server with the rattail was the rudest and slowest server I have ever experienced. He was too busy chatting with a local customer (who ordered a coffee to go) to run our plates of food. So we watched as our food got cold, just a few feet away from us. Eventually, after our...

Stopped for a late lunch in Crawford Bay and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of their food. We had the wild salmon wrap and salad and enjoyed the zippy sauce with a nice blend of flavours. Service was a little slow, but it did get busy while we were there, and only one person was serving. Would definitely recommend... More

Incredible food, one of the most diverse and delicious menus we have seen. Do not go here if you're planning on catching the ferry, do go here if you have all the time I the world and love amazing food.

Have now stopped here twice and the service is so horribly and painfully slow. If there was another decent place to eat this place would be out of business. The ONLY saving grace is the food is actually quite tasty. Unique food choices. My order was messed up but after waiting close to an hour for soup and a salad... More

We stopped on our way from the ferry to the campground. The food was amazing and the staff was very good at helping us decide what to order.

My husband and I stayed in the area during August long weekend. We accidentally found this place and were impressed by the quality of the food. It was not a simple american pub food that one could expect at the small towns and villages. It was a sophisticated fusion tapas with excellent sauces. Homemade lemonades are worth to mention as...

This little community is full of 'Artisan' shops and this little jewel should be one of them! Wonderful gourmet food with many unusual sauces. Small portions so it's easy to try several of the items listed on the menu. We had dinner one evening and came back the next day to enjoy the lunch menu. Our favorite for dinner was... More

We have been coming to the area for the past ten years for holidays and we discovered the Cafe a few years ago. We love the outdoor patio, the food and the waitresses have been great. The only problems have been with the owner. I continue to be astounded by his lack of attentiveness each time we visit. On two... More

This restaurant was highly recommended by our B&B owner so we decided to check it out. We sat in the relaxed outside area. Everything on the menu looked so interesting and delicious, we wished we could have tried more! We had the pork tenderloin francaise (has goat cheese & balsamic), tango prawns, and kale and orange salad. The flavours of... More
