A lovely meal

We enjoyed our meals at this cozy restaurant just off the main strip on Clearwater Beach. The chef in his tiny kitchen worked his magic and served up dish after dish to an almost-full restaurant. It was fun to watch him. I had the pasta special of the day with spinach, shrimp, artichokes and... read more

Not for young kids but this is a highlight on the beach. Hidden away but worth finding. Trendy and fresh, we really enjoyed eating here on the outside patio.

This was one of the best we tried in Clearwater. Great staff and cozy club like feel. We like to order several dishes and share everything, so on this night we tried the Mediterranean pizza, French onion soup, and a grouper special. Everything was delicious! We finished up with the banana creme pie which was beautiful, but not very flavorful.... More

Excellent baked white fish in parchment paper. The half rack of ribs was good. Quaint dining in garden area with flickering gas heater. Very Kool!

This is a cheaper version of excellent dining in Clearwater Beach area. The location is hard to fond since it is behind the main street area of Clearwater Beach.

A little hidden gem. What a great atmosphere! From the outside, you would not expect what you see when you get inside. Great food, terrific wine selection!

If you're a wine lover and want a casual, mid-priced meal with an incredible wine list (shared with nearby Beachcomber) this is the place. Good (not great) food/menu. My teens wore shorts.

Food was very poor. We sent the meals back. No flavour, the chicken was dry and very tough. The manager was extremely rude. When we politely explained the problem she snatched the plates from under our noses. Next slapped the bill on the table. No communication whatsoever. Rudest person I have ever met. Don't go there. You have been warned!!!... More

I cannot begin to explain how great this place really is. The food is totally outstanding and I like the semi-outdoor eating option.
