The “wine bar” is intimate, service excellent and the dinner exceptional! We had a wonderful three course meal that included lobster bisque, red snapper and dessert (cherries jubilee and a gateaux) each paired with a very nice French wine. We’ll return!

This is a popular place in downtown Portsmouth. Colorful macaroons are behind the counter and the desserts look delicious! There is a wide range of foods on offer from salads, cold sandwiches, sweet or savory crepes and hot plates such as croque monsieur and quiche.
