“A little disappointing”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

I expected more from this restaurant based on the reviews. I had the duo of duck which is sliced duck breast with the "confit", basically they took the meat of the confit and put it en croute. While both tasted fine it was nothing special if you've had duck in the past. The shank was another plate that tasted bland considering the type of meat and the supposed preparation.

“Best food on Amelia Island”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Our entire family enjoyed! Small, quaint atmosphere and delicious food. Prepared with lovely sauces and flavors. The staff is so kind,knowledgeable and readily accommodate special requests from children. Fabulous wine list! A must if you're a foodie and staying on Amelia Island. The chef is even a magician:)

“WOW!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

My wife and I had a wonderful meal and excellent service! The catfish dish was out of this world, and the steak could not have been better prepared. Perfection. The chef takes time to talk to regular customers, and it is clear from his food he puts his love into his work. Never had even a mediocre bite in this small, quiet restaurant. Definitely worth your time to find it and tell your friends!

“Wonderful evening”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

I had a wonderful meal with my adult children. Each one of us ordered something different and all was delicious. The service was good and personal. We enjoyed the food, atmosphere and each other's company so much, we closed down the place. Be sure and ask the chef to show you some magic tricks next time you visit!
