You couldn't ask for a more beautiful surrounding--right on the beach with gorgeous views, this small, European style establishment that caters to good taste is tucked behind condos and could be easily missed. The service is the best we had during a recent 2-week trip in Florida. We got adventurous and both ordered the chef's tasting menu, which offers several... More

The food was real high end, with service and knowledge in a class of its own - a Michelin restaurant worthy. The place itself is cosy, but more beach like. ( I guess that is the point).

Sat on the balcony on Fourth of July, and had a wonderful waiter from Chicago, didn't catch his name, but he was great :) Ordered the scallop special, my date ordered the grouper. Both were beautiful and delicious! Began with lobster fritters, which were also wonderful, along with the pineapple martini. My date loved his dessert, some sort of chocolate... More

We went around 6:30. Just actually went for a few cocktails but ending up getting a wonderful, actually the best scallops I ever had! Yummy martinis with stuffed blue cheese olives. Very happy. Highly suggest. Treat yourself... You will not be disappointed. I am going back soon for another special treat for myself!
