Wow! Finally, after numerous disappointing meals at various restaurants around the Fort Walton Beach and Destin area we found one worthy of accolades. The restaurant is located just under the bridge with a nice outdoor deck on the water. The reflection of the lights off the water set the romantic mood for the late evening dinner. My husband and I each had a glass of house red wine. He had a merlot and I had the cabernet. Both were very good and reasonably priced compared to the watered down tropical drinks at previous restaurants. They had a nice wine list which I have not noticed in the other restaurants. After making our meal choices the waitress brought us two piping hot loafs of fresh French bread with butter. Yum! My husband ordered the escargot for an appetizer. It came in a light crispy pastry. He said it was very good and enjoyed the pastry. For dinner, I had the filet mignon which I requested done medium. It was served with fresh vegetables (green beans, white beans and baby carrots) and a potato pancake. It was done to perfection. Practically melted in my mouth! The vegetables came hot and cooked to perfection. Not mushy or crunchy! My husband ordered the duck in a cherry sauce. It was very tender and enjoyable. Although we normally do not order a dessert we couldn’t pass the opportunity to try the silk chocolate mousse pie and the tiramisu. Both were delicious! Wow! What a change to have finally found a restaurant that knew not only how to prepare food but also had the ambiance and the excellent wait staff to receive a five star review from us. We would highly recommend this restaurant without hesitation to everyone and especially to all of the other visitors who have been extremely disappointed in the meals that they have overpaid for in the other restaurants around the Destin-FWB area! This restaurant is worth the money and the drive! p.s. We recommend the outdoor seating--right on the bay. See attached photo.
