We popped in there for breakfast on the way out of town. This was our default as we stayed at the hotel the night before. We were expecting a ho-hum hotel breakfast. Wow! What a surprise. Fantastic breakfast. My eggs and potatoes were amazing! Fresh...More

Dinner was very good. The local asparagus was especially tasty. Breakfast was also good, but with the restaurant empty there was no need to play loud club music. In their defense, they did turn it down when we asked, Overall, a bit pricey but in...More

Enjoyed drinks and dessert at Anchor. Next time dinner...the menu looked amazing. The Tangerine Ketel drink was wonderful and refreshing and Apple Tart with Olive Ice Cream fantastic. Very cool vibe and atmosphere

This is a restaurant that specializes in small plates. This is what you order. Skip the entrees. The sides, small plates and pizza are the specialties here. Skip the pasta-small portion for $24 not worth the cost, but the other dishes are well worth the...More

This restaurant is a hip, fun and noisy place. The food was wonderful. The Bronzino was amazing, as well as many other dishes (there were nine of us) and everyone loved what they had.
