Nice tapas/crepes - but some things they didn't have

What we did eat was very tasty and light; just what we wanted after a BBQ heavy lunch. However, there were items on their menu that it turned out they didn't have (prosciutto, three different beers), which was disappointing. We had the stuffed date tapas which were delicious and beautifully... read more

They have a limited menu, but what they do, they do well. My husband had beef in wine reduction sauce and I had lamb chops. Both excellent. I also had a wonderful wine. I would rate 5 stars but the atmosphere was just a tad bit lacking. Great music but a bit dark.

We had dinner here in the bistro portion of the restaurant. This includes dinner crepes, tapas, salads and other relatively light dinner fare. We stopped in on Friday night around 5:30 and were surprised that they were not busier. I guess most people prefer the "saloon" type restaurants, but we found this quiet and comfortable. The food was very good... More

The food and staff was amazing. I recommend the crepes, and home made corned beef hash. Definitely do not leave without a delicious scone.

My wife and I ate here for dinner. First of all, it's like sitting in someone's living room...comfortable stuffed chairs, books and games all around. They have a large wine selection and let you sample before you finalize your pick. We tried crepes and really enjoyed both the mushroom and seafood crepes. For desert we tried the dutch apple crepe... More

From the coffee to the prices, this place is tops. It also doesn't ever have the lines of other sit down breakfast restaurants, which makes no sense to me. My husband and I enjoyed breakfast there twice while in town. They even have great gluten free biscuits for those with wheat or gluten allergies. Service was attentive but not too... More

We stopped in before going to RMRT so unfortunately only had time for the tares(ala Carte) menu the Garlic Shrimp was seasoned and cooked perfectly. We also had Stuffed Dates, the dates are stuffed then wrapped in bacon and served piping hot. These alone are worth the trip. They also offer a 2 course and 6 course meals after this... More

Great chicken ala king crepe and great seafood crepe. A little pricey, but great food. Quiet atmosphere.

This restaurant is a quiet little bistro tucked away in between shops in Grand Lake. We ordered multiple courses (vegetarian) and each one was its own unique creation. The presentation was great and the tastes were outstanding. The bruschetta was especially good!

Stopped in for breakfast at 10:50. Although the breakfast hours were from 8-11, the host was surly and gruff and announced that they would be closed for an hour to prepare for lunch. A different approach, such as "sorry, we are finishing our breakfast time; could you stop by in an hour for lunch?" would have left us with better... More
