This charming bistro was listed as the #1 St Pete Beach restaurant in Tripadvisor, and it did not disappoint. Wonderful and surprisingly varied menu -- from curries to seafood to steaks. I had the seafood curry and my husband chose the evening special -- filet tips in a port wine sauce over penne -- both delicious! Fresh ingredients, great food and warm, friendly service. A well-chosen wine list and reasonable prices rounded out the experience nicely. Highly recommended. We are sure to return!

“Just a great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013 via mobile

Nice relaxing atmosphere with great food and good wine. Nice to get a nice, fresh, well presented meal instead of the the deep fried usual beach food. It's also nice to get away from the music and plastic cups on the beach and enjoy a decent glass of wine and a fine meal.

“Cozy place with great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

We had the Ahi appetizer and it was top notch. I had the Sea Scallop and Shrimp special that was excellent as well. All fresh ingredients and not overcooked. Price is a tad higher than many other places but seeing as how the quality of ingredients and freshness was apparent well worth it. Great friendly waiter who was very professional. We will be back.

“Exceptional food and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

We visited this area for 3 days and found this on our second day and went for a meal which we enjoyed tremendously and were so impressed with the choice of menu and quality of food.
The next night we returned and repeated the pleasurable experience. It has a lovely ambience and the owner and staff were very welcoming and we would not hesitate in recommending it to anybody visiting the area as it definitely warrants its 5 star rating

“No 1 for good reason”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

The best dining experience you could have on St Pete Beach...or any of the local beaches for that matter. Relaxed and sophisticated atmosphere that is in no way stuffy or over-the-top. Whether you are with friends, family or your significant other--if you want to enjoy food, wine and conversation---this is the place to go. This evening we had an absolutely delicious snapper dish and the Cucumber Salmon--a properly season grilled dish that, interestingly, is topped with chilled cucumber, dill, caper, and lemon..over rice. Delicious. The soup special this evening was a lemon chicken, which had the appropriate hint of lemon and jasmine rice (among other ingredients). One of the better soups I have had in a long time. As usual the staff is fantastic and professional. You will not find a better team of people that obviously enjoy where they work--that is a guarantee. Nice wine selection...dessert selection...and coffee served with a few treats on the side. By far, the most hands on owner in the business..ensuring your meal is exceptional. Warm and festive ambiance for the Holidays as well. Two superb entrees, soup, salad and a bottle of wine...UNDER $100. Well done---again!
