Lively dining spot on a quiet street. Formerly a Catholic church, the interior has been beautifully tranformed into the bistro. Quite elegant. Service excellent as is the food. Dined on duck with delicious noodles, and Cape Cod bouillabaisse. Both were cooked perfectly. Shared a chocolate molten cake with vanilla ice cream - moist and creamy.

A 'fine-dining' experience in Sandwich. Although not advertised, they have a 'kids menu'. Relatively expensive but a great place to eat for that special meal.

We all ordered something different, salmon, rabbit, haddock and crab cakes, and we were all pleases with our dinners. The appetizers of clam chowder and Caesar salads were well made with just the right amount of seasoning. The service was excellent and the atmosphere very nice.

This place was great. Not only is the atmosphere cool (old church) but the food was outstanding - I had the Dayboat Scallops and Lobster Risotto, and my husband had the Beef Tenderloin - both were incredibly tasty. We also had some craft cocktails and the vanilla crème brulee for dessert. Pricey, but would definitely go back!

The owner is one of the most welcoming hosts in the region! All aspects of the event were handled very professionally. Everyone in attendance remarked on the wonderful conversion of the old church to a most unique restaurant.

Love this restaurant...it is very unusual sice it's an old church and is designed very well. The wait staff is consistently good as are the menu offerings. Service is attentive but not overwhelming with no hovering! Absolutely worth a visit.

I always wanted to go but never had the occasion. But finally it was the perfect place for a send off with a good friend. I had the salmon which was fabulous. Great wine selection, superb staff and quite a lovely atmosphere. I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone.

We went to this restaurant specifically for the ambiance and we were not disappointed. The renovation of the church is wonderful especially since as much as possible of the original has been preserved. The stained glass, the stone walls, the altar are all there with the tables arranged around the interior. The food we had was excellent, but we were... More

We went to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was perfect, excellent service, great food and lovely ambience. We had Oysters, steak, duck and risotto. All perfect. Fine wine list. Certainly a place to return to.
