First, the food is here is very good. The mussels are a favorite of ours. You cannot go wrong with anything on their menu. Fresh and delicious. Unfortunately, it is very loud here. You will be tired of straining to hear your fellow table diners as this place is so noisy. You are also packed in very tightly - not... More

We have never been disappointed at this quaint restaurant. Our favorite meal without question, is the Diver Scallops with Wild Mushroom Risotto! OMG... so good. Every. Single. Time. We love to sit at the bar, but it gets really crowded so that is not always an option. No matter where you sit, the food is superb!

A superb restaurant for a consistently good night out. A bright lively atmosphere. Reservations on weekends a good idea. Serving sizes are filling. DO NO MISS the friend calamari. The best I have ever had (an opinion share by many others I know who have traveled and eaten out extensively).

Small but packs a wallop in terms of service AND food. The fried Calamari and crab cakes are to die for. We loved it so much we went back the next night for takeout!. We will be back there again this coming weekend. My new favorite!

This restaurant never fails. Great smallish menu with nice sized portions. My wife and I usually share two appetizers (the mussels are to die for) and then split a main course. With a modest bottle of wine we typically spend $100 before tip and tax. Not cheap, but worth the money. Great service and comfortable seating. I have eaten here... More

We've been driving by for years. Decided to try it out when the wait was too long at a restauraunt down the street. We were very glad we did. This is a hidden gem. Excellent food and great service. The place was spotless and tastefully decorated, anywhere that has windows to view into the kitchen has confidence in the quality... More

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.
