Nice surprise in this small town. The food was delicious, the wait staff attentive, and the cost was not too outrageous. The menu was limited but there was somethng for each of us in our party of four.

“Excellent service, pleasant French dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

On the main street paralleling the waterfront this French style bistro offers excellent service, good food and good cabaret style music to dine with and a nice atmosphere with candles and white tablecloths. The appetizer menu is more interesting than the entrees which are fairly typical of an American French style bistro. The waitstaff were amazingly attentive and did not rush us. They paid close attention to empty plates and water glasses. No plate was removed until all had finished their dishes. The salad portions were very generous, more than enough for two and reasonably priced by today's restaurant standards for this quality. The greens were nicely dressed and the 4 Coriander grilled shrimp served with avocado, cucumbers and tomato on a bed of mesclun greens were excellent. They offer a special menu as well as the regular menu. The charcuterie plate was bit pricey as half the plate consisted of pickled vegetables with smaller amounts of sausage, pate,and a terrine. Mussels that evening were on the special menu and were served with a super abundance of pommes frites that were hot,crisp and not oily. The mussel portion was also generous. The have a very large hamburger platter with local beef which also came with French fries and greens.There are special desserts as well as those on a regular dessert menu and not all were chocolate. The restaurant is pleasant , the service is excellent and the atmosphere is very conducive to a pleasant dining experience.

“Lovely French bistro!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

The French music was lovely along wih the atmosphere but, most important, the food was excellent! We stopped in for Easter brunch and we're fortunate they had a table. The produce was fresh, the eggs were from a local farm, and the dishes extremely creative. The ratatouille omelet was excellent and the Caesar salad with grilled chicken and fig-anchovy crostini was wonderful! I look forward to having dinner here the next time I visit my RWU student.
