What terrific food, and a great setting, well worth the drive to find it. We had pan-seared scallops cooked to perfection, along with an innovative quinoa salad with slivers of veggies and fruit. Really sorry we found this restaurant our last evening in the area....More

Ive only been here a couple of times but the Fish and Chips are really good and they do have a full bar for whatever accompanying drink you wish. Parking is a bit limited but its one of the better restaurants on the Peninsula.
