What an experience ! While we ate some of best food ever, we had a front row seat watching the chef cook for everyone. You get to choose the wine with a lot of help from the owner/chef,and is reasonable and excellent. Do not miss this experience, you will be sorry.

Very basic restaurant with outdoor seating, paper plates and plastic cups for water. The food served was absolutely delicious, home grown herbs, everything freshly prepared. The chef was very friendly and the food was served with a smile. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Been a few years since my last review - have been there quite a few times since then and have ALWAYS been more than happy. Just to let people know - it is still one of our favorites!! Tonight was simple salad and Mexasian Pork. Man was it good - paired with Malbec/syrah from Argentina AND outdoors. Please support Robert... More

We had a recommendation and a warning about The Prospector. The restaurant is small, the chef is also the owner and has rules about his food, first of all NO substitutes, the chef is an artist and a talented chef, his pizza is one of the best I have ever, and he wants you to eat it as his authentic...

Last night we made the first of many visits (to come) to an absolutely fantastic little restaurant in Twaine Harte. Wood fired pizzas, great beers and some excellent wine choices. We ate inside as it's a bit chilly this time of year and enjoyed the almost (no darts) pub like atmosphere of the place, wood smoke and all. What a... More

The menu tells one that the food service is slow, that there are no substitutions and if one doesn't like that way, to leave (which we did). The food is really high priced. We were not treated very well and the waitress yelled at us about moving a chair. We had a party of six and there were only four... More

We had a delicious dinner here Saturday night. I had heard that the chef does not make substitutions which is off putting to some people. We arrived and the menu for the evening was posted outside. Braised pork roast with red lentils, sweet potato gnocchi with sage in a brown butter sauce. Wow, who would want to substitute anything? This... More

Simply put this is a memorable place to eat. Watching the chef prepare the delicious meal in his wood fired oven is better than TV! I had the Margherita Pizza and it was one of best of its type I ever had. Nicely charred crust, just the way it should be. Great beer selection. Best of all people sit communally... More

Don't often review a restaurant twice but I thought I should on this occasion. The first review I gave only 4 stars and I felt little guilty about that because the second visit the food was just simply stunning. We had a green leaf salad to share followed by top sirloin, cooked medium rare in a pepper sauce. The beef... More
