This small place offers a fresh daily menu and the food is great. It is tough to find so be persistent, you have to go through the hotel lobby at least that is how I get there, then there you are on the tall dunes at the ocean front. It is the only truly ocean front place left other than... More

We stayed at the hotel this Bistro is in and had a bed and breakfast deal. We were full halfway through our choices!!! The banquet chef was a waiter (we went during the off season) and it was his first and second day but he did a great job. Portions are huge!

We ate breakfast there every morning. It was cooked fresh and delicious. The staff was attentive and friendly. For dinner we enjoyed a Caesar salad with fresh fried oysters and a meatloaf dinner special. We would recommend this restaurant.
