“Bad service”
Reviewed July 5, 2009

The food was alright but the service terrible. It seemed like there were only two waitresses. A good one and and a bad one. We got the bad one. I think they plan on keeping the bad one. The manager came over and took are order and explained how busy the server was. Even though there were only about five tables with people and Two people to take care of them. Also as a side note I had the worst cappuccino ever there. It was the only part of order the waitress took and it took about ten minutes to arrive with no foam. Today we went to Suzanne's Cuisine. Great service, food and they can handle cappuccino.

“Best cuisine and best value”
Reviewed May 16, 2009

This is the best food in town! The atmosphere is relaxed and the food is excellent! The terrace has a garden atmosphere with pleasant view of the mountains and the golf course. Try the Ahi, the Nicoise, or any of the chef's specials. They have the best desserts and the best soups! I've never had even an average meal...they've all been exceptional. Even their hamburgers are great because they make their own buns and their own potato, yam and beet chips! Their shrimp and feta pizza is fab!

“Great, Reasonable and Creative”
Reviewed March 8, 2009

Great place. The food was terrific and you could go back 5 times and still have things you want to try. Dinner was really reasonable and creative - mushroom soup encroute, oxtail soup, fabulous salads and a yam strudel with curry sauce and chutney that was to die for - even the carnivores loved it. We would have gone back over and over if we had more nights! Plus, they brought tastes of the soup and the wine before we decided - at their suggestion.
