Very basic restaurant with outdoor seating, paper plates and plastic cups for water. The food served was absolutely delicious, home grown herbs, everything freshly prepared. The chef was very friendly and the food was served with a smile. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Been a few years since my last review - have been there quite a few times since then and have ALWAYS been more than happy. Just to let people know - it is still one of our favorites!!

Tonight was simple salad and Mexasian Pork. Man was it good - paired with Malbec/syrah from Argentina AND outdoors.

Please support Robert & Ruth - a different place with GREAT food and PIZZA.

We had a recommendation and a warning about The Prospector. The restaurant is small, the chef is also the owner and has rules about his food, first of all NO substitutes, the chef is an artist and a talented chef, his pizza is one of the best I have ever, and he wants you to eat it as his authentic recipe is designed.

You help yourself to cutlery, wine, plates (paper due to the water shortage). You share your main with your partner, no more than 6 in a booking and if they are busy you will share a table with strangers.

It's quirky, shabby with character, want a different dining experience then try the prospector, if you like good food you won't be disappointed but NO substitutes.

Last night we made the first of many visits (to come) to an absolutely fantastic little restaurant in Twaine Harte. Wood fired pizzas, great beers and some excellent wine choices. We ate inside as it's a bit chilly this time of year and enjoyed the almost (no darts) pub like atmosphere of the place, wood smoke and all. What a find...we'll be returning!
Yes the owner seems a little curmudgeonly...but so what? It's a large part of the charm.
If you watched the Seinfeld Show about the 'Soup Nazi' you'll know how to act here. Actually I found the owner and waitstaff pleasant, proficient and professional.
Highly recommended...well worth the drive if you're in the area.

The menu tells one that the food service is slow, that there are no substitutions and if one doesn't like that way, to leave (which we did). The food is really high priced. We were not treated very well and the waitress yelled at us about moving a chair. We had a party of six and there were only four chairs -- she knew we had a party of six -- there was no one at the nearby table and we moved two chairs from that one. She was really upset that we moved those chairs as she was going to seat a party of four there -- they were no where in sight, but somehow expected two of our party (who was there first) to stand? We left and went to El Jardin. the customer service there was excellent.
