Went in there last week. It's early in the season so the staff was new, but the apparent owner chef has been there for several years.

Their food is quite expensive, particularly considering I was there for lunch. Omelette was $12 and as I recall nothing was less than that. This for an informal quick bite to eat.

Hard to highly receommend.

They had fantastic food. Hours are terrible, and they are on the more expensive side. But overall they were by far my favorite restaurant on the island.

One of the better establishments for food on the island. They cater well for vegans and vegetarians. Nice menu selection. The vegetatian items were really fresh and served in good portions, however the pasta dishes were microwaved and small.

... this place has gone downhill. We visited 2 years ago and had a good meal with a lovely outdoor dining area. The owners daughter served us and was a delight.

This past July, we visited and found the place just not the same. The service was horrible, the two young ladies serving were inexperienced and poorly trained.

The food was poorly prepared with no effort made at presentation. The salad greens were wilted and was drizzled with an imperceptible amount of dressing.

Sad, we were so looking forward to our return.

After a long day of working and grabbing the ferry to get to Lopez, we were just hungry and needed a bite. We saw the Love Dog and thought it looked cute. We were the only customers in the place when we arrived; it got slightly busier when we were leaving. The food was ok, nothing to write home about. However, it was a bit overpriced for the amount and quality of the food.
