“Food is great, but hours do not make a lot of sense.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

We tried to eat at this place twice, unsuccessfully, and succeeded only on the third try. The lunch hours are so idiosyncratic that you may as well assume it is closed. Dinner ends at 9:30 on a Friday, and that is the "late night" extended hours. Yes, this is a small town on an island and all that, but a bit longer hours and predictability would be great.That said, the food was delicious. We had small plates; each was very well prepared. Service was kind and helpful but not intrusive or overbearing. Decor is comfortable, and the tables on the porch have a good, relaxing view of the water.Definitely would try to go there again, just not sure how easy it would be to fit it into the cramped schedule of a weekend break at the island.

“Slow service, had to leave before I could get my food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Wanted to pick something up quickly before our car was to pick us up for a whale watching tour. Ordered something that should have taken 2 minutes to put together. Fifteen minutes later, still no food despite reminding them several times we were in a hurry. Ended up leaving without our food and $28 poorer. If they couldn't deliver in time, just tell us.

Food does look good though.

“Great breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Highly recommend eating here. Breakfast was fresh. Felt like the cooks were making food for their own family. Clean, nice, great view and really good food.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Fresh salmon prepared in a delicate sauce over mouth watering mash potatoes and veggies.... Devine! The service was first class too. A gourmet restaurant in a small town!
