This is a small but very popular and lively café right in Hingham center. The food is good, but not excellent. Reservations are a must. Expensive--$25-40 per person without drinks for dinner. Also open for lunch. Very nice atmosphere. Big drawback is noise at dinner. Very difficult to carry on conversation then.

I love the decor of this restaurant. The lunch menu has a good variety of choices. I had the Thai spicy shrimp salad and enjoyed every bite of baby spinach, crunchy vegetables, 5 large shrimp perfectly cooked, with peanuts and a tasty Thai sauce. I'm looking forward to a return visit soon.

We have been eating at the square for about 10 years, and it NEVER disappoints! The tuna two ways, the Thai mussels, the calamari, the BREAD WITH OLIVE OIL are out of this world! The staff is excellent, attentive and friendly with great recommendations. Everyone in the area knows this is the best quality food and menu available in Hingham...... More

What a wonderful experience, right in downtown Hingham! Our waiter, Luke, was awesome! The food was above my expectations. The calamari app was excellent...one of the best calamari dishes I have had in a long time. The reason for 4 stars in lieu of 5 is due to the portions for the main. Granted we ordered from the small plate... More

One of our favorite restaurants in Hingham. It isn't cheap, but you get what you pay for. Service is always outstanding and we have never had a bad meal in ten years.

My favorite on the South Shore. From sophisticated, fresh seafood dishes to a gourmet burger, one of the most creative and delicious menus anywhere.

This restaurant has beautiful curb appeal and is so welcoming with the moss green velvet curtain shielding the doorway. We were greeted right away and seated at the little corner seat in front of the hostess station. Our server, Sean, was just adorable and very well informed and accommodating. We started off with the grilled octopus and it was delicious.... More

9 pm Saturday March 26th. Shared a nice crab starter, after which wife and friend had a steak and I opted for the yellow fina tuna which was followed by uncontrolled vomiting from 3 till 6 am. Wife and friend were fine. Twice posted feedback on restaurant website including email address but no acknowledgement received. No further comment required.

Thank Francestrainer
