We had a wonderful night at mooncusser's tavern starting with French onion soup. The only down side was that we ordered way too much food. We're used to small plates for tapas and these were big but everything was delicious. We took 2 plates home...More

One of the restaurants recommended by our hosts, Mooncussers had the disadvantage of following after meals at the Cape Sea Grill, whose inventive cuisine would be hard to match. That said, the food here was tasty and well prepared. The young woman who took our...More

Let me begin by saying that I can't fathom where the bad reviews come from. Why? Because our service at Mooncussers was stellar, beyond reproach, and the food was the best I have ever eaten in a restaurant on the Cape or in Boston. And...More

It's worth going out of your way just for the Beef Carpaccio! Slightly different take than you might be used to but my summer isn't complete without a couple of these. Nom, nom!!

You should ask the establishment; they are very nice people and will strive to help. Here is a link to their menu and it appears that there are vegetarian options. Go to their website to view the menu.
