Great patio and place to grab a cocktail!!

I can't review the food, as we came here for a late afternoon drink and snack - but the atmosphere was fun and the location is convenient to lots of shops. We did order a round of the smoked corn croquettes, which were terrific. The pisco was a very light, refreshing drink and not too strong. The... read more

If you love a good cocktail, don't miss. This building itself is neat, bar downstairs and interesting restaurant upstairs with an open kitchen. The menu tends towards simple, fresh meats and if you are an adventurous eater you'll love it! Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal greatly, and we would def go again.

The four of us are lunch here between wine tastings. All of the food was great with no complaints. We had the mushroom soup, arugula salad, cod fritter, and quail. The portions were small, but the corn fritter and cheese plates appetizers made up for the small lunch portions. It was a beautiful day so we sat on the patio... More

I've eaten many burgers in my day but, honestly, this one was the best ever. Seriously! The fries that accompany it are killer too, the best. First time I sent compliments to the chef it was that good. I've gone back many times because I live in St Helena. You can see the burgers practically flying out of the kitchen.... More

Great menu and drink choices. Fun atmosphere. A must do in St. Helena - The burger is probably the best I have ever had and the daily specials always rock. You can't go wrong with this place.

Great menu featuring a balanced entree list, full wine list and great appetizers. Surprisingly full of noisy children which made it less of a special dining spot.

I went with a group and we went straight for the full course lineup of food. They started with a cream of mushroom soup served up in a tiny cup, which was very rich and thick. Everyone finished theirs so obviously it was good. You'll get a nice, big salad there, they obviously don't try to cheat you on, on... More

We went with very little expectations due to knowing next to nothing about the place and were pleasantly surprised. I had the burger with duck fat fries which was delicious and husband had the pork t bone which was amazing. Price of wine was a let down at $50 per half bottle given the area and the huge amount of... More
