Good food - GoodService

Although the restaurant is very small and closes early as compared to others in the area, it is worth the visit. If they used real table cloths without paper coverings, live music, guitar or key board player?, it would be a a place to take a date for dinner. The service is good, the chef makes sure... read more

This quaint hole in the wall restaurant is in the most unlikely of tiny shopping centers and is a hidden gem in Yorba Linda. The chef came out multiple times to talk to us throughout our meal. The food portions are more than generous and quality of each bite is well worth any calories you may take in. We will... More

This was a real surprise. Small place, maybe 10 tables, but service was great and food was even better. Other than soups, it seemed and tasted like everything was made to order. We visited with friends and shared around the table. Everything was excellent. We tried the jambalaya, meatloaf, lamb special and a fish special. Everyone agreed, they would be... More

Love this little restaurant. The chef makes great food and changes menus often. We were here for a family gathering and It was a perfect evening. Love this restaurant and will continue to come back. I highly recommend reservations.

It may take you a couple passes on Yorba Linda Boulevard to find this place; but once you do, you'll be glad you did! This is a very small (limited seating) restaurant that prides itself on excellent service and exquisitely prepared cuisine. Since seating is limited, reservations are a must. The tables and space are small, which make the dining... More

Living in Yorba Linda for 2 years now, can't believe we hadn't gone before. The food was excellent as was the service. Just around the corner from us, we'll surely be back!

Long time Yorba Linda choice for quiet, excellent and more intimate dinner. Small number of tables so make your reservation. Menu changes frequently based on best food items available. This is popular with home town residents.

This is a great place to go to get something special and off the beaten path. The owner/chef is usually cooking something unique that is always a treat. Also, homemade desserts and icecream. Gets busy on Friday and Saturday nights, so reservations are a good idea. Prices are a little on the high side, but the uniqueness, quality and flavor... More
