“Good place for a beer and wine”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

Lower bar offers inside and outside seating. Quiet after the summer rush. Felt like it was looking forward to just the locals coming back. Very busy in summer when population swells 10 times the normal. Good place to meet after saturday market in Gamges.

“Huge disappointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

I wish I had read the reviews before trying this place. The best thing about the experience was sitting by the fire pit and listening to the guitarist. The service is rock-bottom. The first thing that happened was the person who wipped the crumbs from the previous diner onto our laps. Then there was the wait person spilling wine all over the table and glasses and didn't bother to wipe it up. Then there was the need to ask for cutlery to go along with the meal. The food sucked. Enough said?

“Right on the marina - good food & atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

My daughter & I had a lovely late lunch on the deck after attending the Saturday market. The halibut tacos were fresh and tasty with the best corn tortillas ever. I had a salad that was fresh and tasty with grilled prawns. The pizzas looked great. You can't go wrong with fresh seafood in this part of the world. We enjoyed a very nice Columbia Crest Cab at a reasonable price. Service was quick and efficient. There was a guy playing guitar and singing, didn't catch his name - but really enjoyable addition to a sunny afternoon with good food & wine.
