When we first walked in we were both taken aback by the decor, being a bistro we were expecting it to be a bit more upscale but don't be fooled by this! The hostess came over and told us there is a second floor partially open to the elements and a third floor open air deck. We chose the second floor bar area. The menu is very extensive offering appetizers, tapas, and full entrees. I ordered the hangar steak with a peppercorn sauce, broccoli, and potatoes. It came exactly as prepared and was very good. The fingerling potatoes could have used a but of butter but later on I realized there was enough sauce from the steak for them. My partner had the seafood risotto and he said it was very good. We both enjoyed this place, it's very unpretentious and laid back but with great food.

The food was really flavorful and the bartender was really helpful. The views from the roof are spectacular of the entire harbor

A well liked restaurant in the middle of Boothbay shopping area. The third floor has rooftop dinning which allows one to easily overlook the beauty of the harbor. The food is delicious and reasonably priced in comparison to the rest of the market pricing for that area. A large variety of cuisine from seafood to steak. The salads are very delicious and worth checking out. The service is polite and the selections varied. A good dining experience that would draw me back if given the chance. You can't go wrong with this choice!

We ordered too much and ate it all anyway. Not sure I'd do the deep fried avocado on the salad again but the empanadas were good although the dough could have been a bit thinner. The tiramisu was not my favorite as it was mostly whipped cream.

Sat on the top floor outside, looking out to the bay. Had many beers and some great food. Chef knows what she is doing. Spanish inspired orzo dish was wonderful. Charcuterie plate was good.
