A bit pricey but well worth every penny. Had the orange French toast which came with whip cream and hot syrup. Also ordered the side of bacon. Definitely not Oscar Mayer but a richer, thicker version. So tasty!!! Wait staff was friendly. Probably more of a place for adults in the evening.

I have to say that this is one of the best meals I have had in a restaurant in a long time. The atmosphere is nice, sitting by the lake. The food was wonderfully prepared and to perfection and our service, Tina B., was fantastic. She knew the menu and answered any questions. She knew the wine and beer. She... More

Café Sante, is a very nice place to dine have lunch or dinner. It is on the waterfront with great views. The food is always delicious. The wait staff are well trained and do a great job. Some of the entertainment has some need of improvement, but other than that great place to go. A little pricy, but you get... More

Food is wonderful. Never disappoints. Also go to Pearls if you are in the area. Three couples everyone loved the food. The steaks were perfectly cooked. Will be going back for a third visit this week.

So guess what I discovered while reading the Blue Mussel page of the Maine.gov page on the internet? Mussel quality varies seasonally - and that probably explains why I enjoyed them so much more last night - and last April vs in November. Apparently early Spring is the best time for the meats weight and taste - and last night... More

We stopped here for a late dinner on a weekend, and only had to wait a short time, at the bar, for a table. Super friendly bartenders who offer up a large & good selection of beer, wine and spirits. Great atmosphere with good, live acoustic music playing. We ordered 3 different wood fired pizzas, Truffled Wild Mushroom, Spinach &... More
