What a magnificent find - the food was delicious & reasonably priced. My husband had the veal cutlet & I enjoyed the shrimp. The atmosphere was casual & friendly. Truly a Diamond in the Rough.

This place has it all - good food, set in an old building - lots of character, attentive but not overbearing service. Our group of six had dinner one evening and the meals were fantastic all around - boeuf bourguignon, shrimp and scallops in creole sauce and more. Save room for dessert - the group shared chocolate cake, coconut flan... More

We stay down the street at the Alizea, and go here 1-2 times each visit. It is a quiet place with a nice atmosphere, and very good food. They have a range of excellent choices, and the salads they have are very nice. I would recommend they expand the selection of appetizers on the menu, but that is a minor... More

Have just enjoyed another relaxing lunch here, choosing from a variety of French dishes using chicken, fish, pasta, steak, and the old standbys hamburger/cheeseburgers. The atmosphere is warm, inviting, and intimate with fifteen tables open to the outside through raised shutters providing a view of the of countryside as local goats walk by on their afternoon stroll.

Had a wonderful dinner with a bottle of wine. The restaurant is open to the outside, which made our dinner even more pleasant.

We discovered Taitu a few years ago while staying at Mt Vernon and it is now a regular favorite - especially on our first night after a long day of travel. It is comfortable and welcoming and the food is great.
