After cancelling a reservation at a restaurant with a beautiful sunset, I chose this restaurant for its proximity and menu. Upon arriving, we were informed that the menu online was no longer available. Instead, we were given the summer menu with the emphasis on fish. My husband chose a burger which was tasty and I chose the chicken dish, which... More

Tried the Cucumber Rum Drink- should be taken of the menu. I almost got sick, have always had it with Gin but it sounded good on the menu. Told the waitress it was bad & she said i still had to pay for it. Sorry but will never visit this establishment again.

Had one drink, not good and they would not take off bill. Poor customer service. Atmosphere was nice. Not very crowded. Off the the congested streets off Newport.

Went here on a Monday night and heard a nice jazz band - fun group to listen to! We also had a great pizza - light and good crust with great mozzarella and red sauce. Would come here again for both!

Found off the beaten track of tourists, this place offers terrific organic eats. We started with Spinach Balls (Outstanding); I had the Chicken Francais (off the charts the most tenderest chicken I've ever had). The chicken was organic and you could really tell the difference. We chose to walk from our harbor hotel which was a good 15 minute walk.... More

Have visited for Sunday brunch as well as dinner multiple times. Food is really good. Service has been consistently great. Love the decor as well as the outdoor seating in the summer. The sticky toffee pudding is a MUST TRY!! Lots of variety -I'm vegetarian and always find something good on the menu to try.

Waitress got our order wrong......seemed uncaring and appeared "high-brow" (snob). Though food was quite good.......fish order was incorrect (in which she apologized) and then she had a miscommunication with the wine order. Instead of giving us a "break" with the wine, no breaks what-so-ever. Bottom line, worse waitress I've had in years. Never go back and would warn others to... More

I found this on opentable and wasn't disappointed!! The staff is very nice and extremely friendly. The food is fabulous! The interior decor is fun with a bar area on one side and dining on a separate side of the room . It's a fun place for drinks as well. The area is more of a local spot .

The place is really nice and very well decorated.. The good was good and the price was appropriate for the food and the place. Unfortunately the air conditioning was far too high and I was freezing!!

My husband, daughter and I sat at the bar served by Brad and Fred and had the best meal! Fish tacos. Waldorf Salad. Quinoa Tofu. Spinach Balls and the must eat dessert Sticky Toffee Pudding. No joke my 14 year old ordered and ate a second one! We HIGHLY recommend taking in the handmade decor and fantastic food!

Thank Terri T
