We have lived here in Portsmouth for eleven years and this is our favorite restaurant- the one we take out-of-town guests to. The upstairs dining room is divine in the evening when you can see the skyline of the city, and the more intimate downstairs dining room is cozy during the week. We have celebrated birthdays, new jobs, and many other events here and have never been disappointed. When my husband wanted to know how to fix the special potato dish, Stephan invited him into the kitchen one afternoon and showed him how. I had to buy my husband a mandolin as a Christmas present so he could make Stephan's recipe! The food is always excellent- we recommend Cafe Mirabelle without reservation!
