Cool atmosphere: not the heavy style of traditional, big- meal restaurant, but a little quirky. Felt at home right away. Appreciated the unconventional selection of menus; myself fancied the mushroom dishes and certainly was not disappointed. Would go back; can also readily recommend.

This was the most creative use of local ingrediants I've had in a long time. Wonderful, varied menu with subtle seasonings and fun combinations. Try the Carmel used dates, walnuts, and local soft cheese to start (or finish) your experience
