This place is awesome, a fantastic menu, incredible service and great drinks! Go and sit at the bar and sample one of the best places on commercial drive.

Oyster happy hour from 5-6pm daily...do it!

A few friends and I just had brunch there today and I overall, the restaurant was quite good. The food was fresh and delicious, albeit the chef was seen running over to buy more groceries a few time during our stay.

The menu was nice and simple, a few of my friends had the various egg benedicts and did not have anything bad to say about it.

The oysters were fresh and tasty with homemade cocktail sauce to boot!

The ambience was nice and quaint; its a small restaurant newly opened up on Commercial Drive.

My only suggestion for improvement would be the service. Don't get me wrong, the staff was friendly, but I thought we could have been waited on a bit more. It didn't seem busy in the restaurant at the time, with only 3 or 4 other parties, but the server never followed up on us after our initial drinks were served, or after our meals were served. For example, the server didn't offer us more tea, water or coffee. In fact, we had to ask each time in order to get our refills. It may not seem like much, but when you see the server standing by the bar eating and not waiting on tables...

Overall, I would go back for the food, not so much for the service.
