We have lived in the OC 35 years. I think I am a foodie yet till yesterday I had not dined at this restaurant for all those years
It is definitely a hidden gem.
Five of us went and everyone was a foodie. Each one left with a happy smile on their face and plates completely clean.
They only sit 24 in the entire restaurant and it is usually full.
They have raclette which is the best I have had outside of Switzerland.
It is fantastic.
Then 2 people had the special of wild seabass, one had the veal, another the scallops, and I had the lamb.
Just superb in every sense.
Just one waiter served all the tables but he handled it well.
Parking can be a problem so go early.
The wine list was very adequate and reasonably priced.
