We were told the penn cove mussels were the best, so we set out to find a late lunch where we could have a pot of mussels. These were probably the best I ever had, the broth was so amazing, I brought it home! The...More

Beautiful views, the best burger in the NW, and friendly servers! As always, the highlight of the summer is a day trip from Seattle to Langley for a family meal on the deck of Prima Bistro.

We had a nice dinner here while visiting Langley. I personally liked their sister establishment, Saltwater, better, but Prima was also nice. The fried cashews were fun and the house smoked salmon was excellent. I found the trout a little plain in its preparation; my...More

I'm a weekly diner there but am not qualified to answer your question, since my husband and I have no dietary issues. I also suggest contacting the restaurant (ask to speak to Jenn or Sieb, the owners).
