Good and not so great!
First, the grounds and the restaurant are beautiful. The ambiance is charming. Service was excellent, efficient, helpful, cheerful and was probably the hilights of our meal.
We shared salmon cakes with banana relish for an appetizer. This was excellent and I give them a lot of credit for making such an original dish, which was very good.
I was going to get the duck with apple salad but I was warned that it is just a salad plate. It was nice to warn me but that should be made clearer on the menu, which by the way is a little hard to read in the scrolling print. I substituted Monk Fish in Curry sauce. It would have been nice if the menu said it came with rice, as I would have tried to substitute with a potato. It was accompanied by a lot of salad (at least half of my plate) that wasn't too interesting, was difficult to cut into eatable parts, and seemed to just fill out the plate. The fish was a little tough but it was explained that Monk Fish is that way, I don't recall that being the case.
My wife had vegetable Mousakka which she said was quite good. It also came with a similar salad that just filled out the plate.
We didn't bother with dessert as we thought we would only be disappointed. On the bright side they sell merchandise upstairs and in the back, and we bought some original home items that were quite reasonably priced.
For main meals costing $20 to $30 or more I expect quite a bit more. Fish with some nicely braised vegetables and potatoes would have made for a much nicer meal.
The staff try hard, are very pleasant, food is OK, but, certainly not special enough to command those prices. I have had much nicer meals for half the price.
I know the owners tried and they are trying to come up with some creative dishes, but, it just didn't seem to come together for me. If I eliminate the duck and the monkfish, there wouldn't be anything left on the menu I would choose.
