A good meal. Service was decent. Seafood was fresh. Moderate portions. Pricey for the atmosphere and food.

This is my first time writing a TripAdvisor review. I really never complain about service but we had a pretty bad experience at this place. We are a family of four with two small children. Our waiter was nice enough when we first came in, made some recommendations and answered some questions. Unfortunately, our kids did not like the meals... More

The food selection was excellent and there is a vegan/vegetarian menu as well. The fish was exceptionally fresh. The portions were large, and I ended up taking leftovers home with me. The staff were friendly and helpful. And the key lime pie was sweet and yummy. I liked the options of sitting outside or inside and watched an order of... More

The staff were friendly and the restaurant was cosy. Drinks were served in large glass jars. There was a good selection on the menu as well as a vegan/vegetarian menu. The food was not to our taste. The toasted cheese on beer bread was dripping in oil, the accompanying soup had oil poured not drizzled on the top. The black... More

We were here several years ago and we had such a good experience that we had to figure this place again. We weren't disappointed, the food was as good as we remembered. Wish they were closer to home

They were highly recommended, but we were not impressed. The food was terrible and the service even worse. We won't be back.

You have to ask for the vegetarian/vegan menu. Be prepared to be blown away! Sweet potato/white bean burger with panko crust, black bean burger, black bean tacos, red curry vegetables, coconut cake! Holy cow. The food was amazing. I don't know why they don't include these in the regular menu. I bet a lot more people would order them. Service... More
