My wife, a good friend and I enjoyed a warm afternoon on the deck overlooking Puget Sound and Whidbey Island. Lunch was excellent and the service as well. We have been there several times before and are always pleased. The mussels were better than ever. On a sunny day it can not be beat.

What a great place! The view is to die for and on top of that the chef makes some of the best food i have tasted. Go for the sunset as it is one of the best places to watch and enjoy al fresco dining. Try the brussel sprouts and mussel appetizers. The menu is limited as it changes quite... More

They had only two offerings for dinner and they were both quite expensive over $50 per person. Wine was also fairly expensive for a single glass. This was a while ago so maybe they have changed their menu policy. I would advise a call so you're not stuck either in an awkward moment or paying a high price for a... More

We stayed at the Camano Island Inn for our anniversary get away wich was wonderful. We made dinner reservations at the Bistro wich is in the same building. The Bistro was not as wonderful as the Inn. We paid $100 for a meal for two that was less than adequate in my opinion. The bread was burnt (as you can... More

The menu here was created to see how avant grade and bizarre they could make it. Vietnamese food at a nice restaurant?? I enjoy gourmet food but not weird food. We visited for lunch and the place was completely empty on a Sunday. We both could not find anything on the menu that even sounded normal and good so we... More

Dear Sailing 717, You know what they say "don't judge a book by its cover". I am pretty sure some may take offense to your comment "Vietnamese food at a nice restaurant??" While our food is not Vietnamese we would proudly serve something inspired by any one of the amazing flavors from around the world in our nice restaurant. Maybe... More

We chose indoors as our reserved time was 7:45 and it was a bit chilly,but gorgeous! Our... More

Dinner was a bit on the slow side, but the food was fabulous, from the dark brown bread to the incredible and unique salted plum and chocolate dessert. The mains were superb, with people's meat doneness requests all being met. Items were created largely from local products. YUM!
