Good food, reasonably priced, friendly service, excellent setting. You don't have to have a meal there's bar seating for just a drink. Have visited a number of times.

After kayaking in the marina we stoped into the bistro for hot chocolate and lunch. We had a delightful waitress and all enjoyed our meals.
