We were only there for breakfast but must say it was delicious! Many breakfast choices and delicious fresh fruit offered in place of bread or potatoes. The service was excellent and almost any table has a spectacular view of the harbor and bay. No one rushed us to leave and coffee was flowing as well as being delicious. We would go back in a minute!

Limited Menu. Often items on the menu are not available. Promise of gluten-free pasta or gluten-free bagels was unfulfilled four days running. Don't eat there.

My family and I were in St. Michael's for a wedding, so we decided to try the afternoon tea at the recommendation of a friend. I am so glad we went! The hotel grounds are beautiful and the view of the bay was breathtaking. The tea service was also amazing. We went on a Friday afternoon at 4 pm and we had the entire restaurant to ourselves. The tea was tasty and the food was delicious. We were served 3 different finger sandwiches (spicy cucumber, smoked salmon with cream cheese, and turkey with cranberry). The desserts were out of this world. My favorites were the coconut macaron and the mini pecan pie. This was the best macaron I have ever tasted...so incredibly airy. The waiter told us the macarons are made in-house. We liked the macarons so much that the waiter kindly brought out some more coffee macarons for us. Other desserts we sampled included biscotti, mini cinnamon muffins, and scones with lemon curd, clotted cream, and raspberry jam. Everything was just scrumptious. I highly recommend the afternoon tea!

What can you say about the most expensive dining on the island? Great things you would think! Sadly, don't waste your time. The menu is weak, the food descriptions sound great but don't contain the quality of ingredients they purport to and the food is ill prepared. Serving is even more random. Apparently the only job requirement here is you have to carry an attitude that you couldn't care less about guests. after gicing this place and the Inn chance after chance, for several years; we have settled on accepting that we can walk or ride to the property to enjoy the view and then return to lodging and dining elsewhere, where people care about guests. It must be the owner to blame since completely different staff year after year all deliver the exact same sad performance.
