Very nice review, thank you for sharing! The dessert you speak of is called a Pistashio Dacquoise, yes it does sound weird but I agree it is delicious. Hope to meet you next time you are in.

We dined here recently and enjoyed the food. The restaurant overlooks the harbor. I had the cod and my husband had the tuna. They were both very good. Excellent wine menu and a full bar.
