Recommended both by our hotel (FQI) and TA, we managed to get last minute seating, which turned out to be the best seats in the house! This restaurant is in an old home, with both porch and interior seating. Unassuming on arrival, it clearly appeared a locals favourite spot. There are four bar stools that sit at an open window directly onto the kitchen. We had two of these seats for dinner and were able to converse with the 3 chefs as they prepared our food (and everyone elses). Watching the work upfront and having the plates handed directly to us by the chef was a great experience.
The food was 'above average', but had a few opportunities for improvement. The gnocci pasta was swimming a little in olive oil, the PEI mussel broth was a little plain and the dessert (a chocolate lava style cake) was a little undercooked. That said, this was a new menu that had just started this week and may have had some growing pains. The rest of the food was excellent, including a nice romaine/apple/nut salad, and some excellent fish. The wine selection was acceptable for a restaurant of this size. The meal was approx. $50 a head for starter, main course, a glass of wine and 1/2 dessert. I certainly recommend this spot - and encourage you to consider the kitchen counter bar!
