Stopped by for a weekday lunch and were taken with the gorgeous view. Although we were quickly seated, it took almost 15 minutes for a server to check in with us and bring water. This was a portend of things to come, as it took an additional 40 minutes from the time we ordered for our sandwiches and soup to... More

We expected more. The food was strictly average. The dining room was extremely noisy. The view was of the Sound was limited. Our experience was more like a bad Denny's than the fine dinning we expected and for which we paid. We made reservation several day in advance and were placed in a corner next to a large group. We...

We had a lovely meal as the sun was setting on a beautiful day. The menu is very imaginative. The ingredients are as local as possible with excellent house made quality. The staff are friendly and professional. I highly recommend the lamb sausage. It is a starter, yet enough for a meal in itself. I had a taste of risotto... More

What a gem of a restaurant - we have eaten here several times and are always blown away with what comes out of the kitchen. We have a very tasty creamy turnip soup and a beet & arugula & goat cheese salad with a light vinaigrette dressing. All made from scratch and beautifully presented. From the flowers on the table,...

I went to dinner here with a few girlfriends on a girl's weekend away. Camano Island has limited choices but we wanted to stay "on island" so gave the Bistro a try. There is also a small Inn and spa at the same location. The restaurant is small and intimate. We had reservations which was probably a good thing as... More

I stayed there about a year ago for a couple nights through a groupon deal. Beautiful location... and wonderful hosts. However, on the last night someone knocked on our door to let us know there would be a water shut off for just five minutes. Well the hot water was never turned back on for the rest of the night....

Thank you for your review...last year we had some water heater issues which have since been resolved...thankfully! We do apologize for this mishap...like a home thing such as these can unfortunately happen without warning...we were happy there was another room upstairs on a different water heater that was unoccupied which could be used...even though it wasn't the same. Thank you... More

The bistro provided breakfast at the B&B.It was most pleasant to choose from their menu instead of a plain continental breakfast. Lunch and dinner menus were flavorful and well designed. Very courteous and attentive staff.

We put my sister and her husband up here about 15 years ago, the rooms were charming and they accommodated a kosher breakfast for my brother-in-law. The charms of the rooms were accentuated by a nice view of Saratoga Passage with the potential for whales swimming by. We had not been there since. A good friend where we live now... More

We wanted to take my elderly mother in law out for a special dinner. She had been very sick and we wanted to something special. My husband, myself, our daughter and my two granddaughters decided to give this place a try as it was close to my mother in laws home. The minute we walked in I felt like we... More
