“Great sunset dining experience right on the water.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

Every table had a view. The servers were prompt, friendly and efficient. The appetizers did not disappoint, nor did the main dishes.

Perfect choice for a little romantic dinner with the view from every angle.

“A Seaside Delight”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

With the restaurant sitting on the water facing the inlet you can hear the seals barking. The food selections are okay. There were some standards you will see at high end restaurants.

Here were my faves: rissotto, calamari, fish stew, steak and shrimp, salad
Not so special: dunginess crab cocktail, salmon, bread pudding, flourless choc cake.

All in all it was a good time . Bill will be around $50 per without wine and cocktails.

“When you need the perfect romantic spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

I convinced my wife to leave our little son with her mother while we took a couple days away to the coast. Well, of course we wanted to go to a romantic place. Saffron Salmon was just perfect in every way!

The portions, while not huge were so delicious and we were seated near the window with a lovely view. The place was quiet, the servers attentive and the dessert, don't even get us started!

We will be back for sure!
