This was our second visit, and we're glad we chose to return. We ate early (5pm) to beat the Valentine's Day crowd, and so were able to choose a table upstairs away from the kitchen doors. My husband had a nice cold Lagunitas IPA and my Merman margarita was strong but tasty. Service was fine, perhaps a tad slow, but the laid-back atmosphere doesnt't lend itself to rushing.
Food: chips & salsa were fresh and yummy for a little nibble before the meal. I ordered scallops in the maple bourbon sauce with grilled banana and sweet potato fries with papaya ketchup. Husband ordered salmon in chipotle glaze with the banana and island rice. We agreed that the meals were cooked to perfection -- scallops melted in the mouth, salmon tender. Sides were excellent and full of flavor. Nothing was overspiced, the meals were balanced and portions were good.
Prices are typical of Portsmouth, and for unique food we find it reasonable. Altogether, a perfectly lovely experience.
