“A christmas dinner to remember”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile

We were delighted to have the 5 course Christmas dinner here this year. The dinner was well paced, nicely presented and delicious. The ambience is casual and friendly and we did not feel rushed as we savoured each course accompanied by the wine pairing. The owners seemed genuinely happy to share the day with us. All in all, a fine dining experience. Muito obrigado.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

The restaurant was small but intimate. The waiter was the owner. I had the duck and my boyfriend had the steak. The steak was delicious and juicy. The duck was also delicious. The prices are high but the portions were just right without having appetizers. Worth going to if on a date.

“Exceptional dinner!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Outstanding duck confit at this intimate restaurant. Great venue for a romantic evening. We went with friends and had an unbelievable meal and superior service. Small venue with a limited number of tables so hope they can make it.

“Nice in many ways”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

The good things: locally grown food, super service, and quiet, great ambience. I don't know why they say $20-25 because it's a lot more than that when you add up deserts, etc. The food was a bit salty, and I did not care for the chocolate peanut-butter cake - it was way too sweet, heavy and big. Still, it's a good meal and a really nice place, you should at least try it for yourself! My friend told me the ice cream is super good - I'd recommend that over the cake.

“Great family dinner!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Super tasty duck and black cod. Love the cozy atmosphere. Great dinner! Definitely make a reservation as it is a small dining room. Service was also fantastic.
