The whole eating experience in this restaurant is brilliant. From the welcome by the host, to the waitress who takes the order and the waitress who bring the drinks. Efficient service but we did not feel hurried or harassed. The clam chowder was superb and the steak so tasty. Loved the chilled glasses. We went to Savory's the following night... More

Charles Street is a very nice, quaint, and charming place with a very romatic setting. It was a Saturday night and we arrived at 7pm (right before the rush of dinner guests arriving) and were seated within 15min. We had a wonderful meal of calamari, break, full rack of ribs (huge portion), and hanger steak. Steak was tender and came... More

Smaller place with top notch service and food. We ate at both the Savory and here. I would say they are tied for#1.

Very warm and personal welcome, the staff was delightful, the place very cosy, the food came quickly and was delicious. The portobello ravioli dish was especially good, and my boyfriend loved the steak. A great place for vegetarians as all dishes can be made vegetarian. Loved it!

My wife and I ate here on both nights that we stayed in Mariposa based on TA reviews and close to our accommodation. Glad we did as the food was excellent both nights. We also heard another couple say that they were having their third nights dinner there as they loved the food. Price and value for money was very... More

We chose this because it looked Ok and was just over the road from our motel. The staff are very friendly, the service was good. I had their beef and barley soup, lemon chicken and apple pie, I sampled my wife's fried chicken and my daughter's pasta. It seems no matter what you order, you'll be impressed. I even liked... More

This is a quaint little restaurant with rustic charm and we had read from reviews on this site that the food was excellent but I realize everyone has different standards and ideas of what is excellent so we went for my birthday dinner hoping for a relatively nice time with satisfactory food but assuming the reviews had exaggerated. They had... More
