“Off the beaten path”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Wonderful service, superb food! Bistro atmosphere, but you can be very casual. Stunning surroundings to take in if you sit on the patio. Home made soups, pizzas, salads, light meals. They have amazing cappuccino's!

“Always a pleasure to visit this bistro.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Good food, great little patio - a perfect place to end a bike/hike/walk. A very homey atmosphere and a really interesting menu. It's definitely worth a visit. Slightly off the beaten track, which can be a very positive thing in a tourist town.

“Has it all!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Every time we visit, we are warmly welcomed! This quaint bistro is family friendly, it has the best pizzas (and my son highly agrees), a sunny patio with amazing views, and fantastic live entertainment on various weekends throughout the year.

“Friendly weekend breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

Had an excellent omelette here on the weekend - lots of veggies and perfectly cooked too. Obviously a busy spot for breakfast on the weekend and really friendly service. Hubby had the spicy burrito and a smoothie which disappeared in 5-minutes or less so must have hit the spot.
My folks have a condo right across from here and said they've had some good meals here on weekends too so I think it is pretty consistent.
