Slightly out of the way but that makes you explore more.

This restaurant serves great eats with finesse and supported by an excellent wine list. Service was fast and friendly but we never felt rushed. It's mid-level priced and delivers value for the money.

This place was packed as usual, but it seemed to be a bad day. Chef seemed hurried and not happy, and the meals we had seemed overly complicated. Sometimes less is more. This was one of those days. Still OK (and you can't say that about most restaurants on a bad day), but we've been there before and it was... More

We were there on Friday night with a reservation and got seated right away. The prawn appetizer was yummy and the vegan choice of black bean cakes was wonderful! I am a local and would love to give the place a 5 but the service was POOR. We had to ask, remind, cajole and beg for water, bread and, finally,... More

My family had dinner last night at this incredible restaurant. The regular menu is wonderful but each night they offer specials that are creations of the fantastic cook. I had the duck special and think it should be added to the menu!! The service was friendly as well as professional and classy.

This is a quite cozy cafe. It is so much what Port Townsend is all about. Great food, great people,nice warm feel and just behind the main st. downtown. We usually go there as a couple or with grown up friends. Because it is so intimate, kids might find a little to restrective.

My wife and I stopped here one night after the movie and were pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere, service, food presentation and flavors. The place isn't real big but what they lack in room they make up for on everything else. They were very friendly, seated us promptly and provided an excellent menu. Great place.
