“Ambiance good, Food ok, but service wasn't great”
Reviewed February 5, 2012

We went there after a full day of skiing, were thirsty and hungry. We had a table by the fire. Nice ambiance. I had the Fish Pasta dinner. Different seafoods were well represented. My wife had pasta prima vera. She enjoyed it. I had a 1/4 litre of wine recommended by the server. My wife had beer. The meals arrived hot. Presentation was ok. Service was poor. There was only one server. As the evening progressed it got busier as did she, and we saw less and less of her. We found it a bit expensive.

Nothing particular to report. Poor Italian restaurant.
Pasta overcooked. Mains are boring.
Avoid.

“Nice night out with the wife.”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

My wife and I were looking for a nice place to eat. We arrived at 8pm, got a table in front of the fireplace. We got the sizzling steak and the captains platter. Both were very good. The price was a little high ($40-$60) a plate, but that was what we were looking for. The steaks were cooked exactly how we ordered. Definitely a place I will keep in mind for a nice night out.

“Nothing interresting there ...”
Reviewed May 22, 2010

Service was really a minimum, had to wait long and nobody seems to care. Food was really not great, nothing special, nothing inspired, not imagiative, ... and on top of that, price was way too high for the mediocre quality. A place to forget ...
