“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

I have heard for years, that the Mews restaurant in Provincetown , MA was superb. It did not disappoint. Six of us went to celebrate our three wives' birthdays. We intentionally arrived early so we could enjoy a drink at the bar before dinner. The drinks were excellent and the bartender attentive and experienced.
Staff has a very relaxed manner, and we took our seats downstairs at our reserved table when we were ready.
The setting provided a beautiful view of Cape Cod bay.
We shared two very pleasant bottles of wine with dinner, following delicious appetizers and bread. My wife and I shared the garlic shrimp appetizer. It was delicious, and the best part was dipping their wonderful breads in the remaining sauce.
For dinner I had the lobster vindaloo. WOWEE! My wife had the swordfish, and she loved it. All six dishes were first rate. I'll try to load photos. We also shared four desserts and coffee.
Our server was relaxed, friendly, and appeared at our table just the right amount of time. She was extremely knowledgeable about every dish on the menu.
The bill, including a 23% tip came to $73 per person. I've paid that much for far inferior meals. All in all, the six of us had a marvelous, fun time. The evening was exactly as we hoped it would be. We all plan to return.

“Good News !”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

There IS a great place to eat in P-Town. Mews is the best place I've eaten in all the years I've been going to P-Town. So glad I fell into the place. Friendly cozy atmosphere with the most delicious food in town.

“Excellent food, first-rate service, beautiful water views - ideal for a special night out”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

The Mews met all of our criteria for a great restaurant: seating was comfortable and roomy, the room was busy but not noisy, our table by the window overlooked the sand and sea, the food was superb, and our waiter, Stephen, was outstanding. Both of our entrees (scallops and duck) were terrific; the Thai crab soup was good, and the mixed green salad was delicious (lightly dressed, just right). We were delighted with the very good and reasonablly priced wine by the glass (a Cabernet and a Malbec). A wonderful evening out (not cheap at $110 for two, but well worth it). Highly recommended.

“So good we ate there twice!”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

Excellent food, cooked to perfection. Good and extensive wine list. The best meals of our three week holiday in New England. Friendly, helpful staff. Take a high top table if offered - great for people watching and very comfortable. Busy restaurant so best to book.
