We love this restaurant! The atmosphere is cozy and warm, they make the best Martinis in town, and the eclectic menu offers something for every taste. We often go here for the excellent tapas menu which includes three types of empanadas, pan salada, a Mediterranean trio and more. The entree menu includes a wide variety that changes frequently and includes beef, seafood, and vegetarian. The staff is very friendly and attentive.

We had a delightful dinner. The meal started with fresh warm bread and an assortment of olives. My husband had the seafood and chorizo paella which was flavorful and loaded with seafood. The shrimp were large and well seasoned. The risotto unfortunately,although flavorful was not very creamy and undercooked whereas I prefer mine creamy and cheesy.

Fine by glass German reisling to start with perfectly opened fresh oysters...local. mignionette sauce with them was delicate and complimentary without overwhelming oyster taste. Salads truly best in a long while. We had both the golden beet/candied walnut/Spanish blue cheese and the arugula/feta/apple...memorable. Entrees: drunken rabbit and duck. Duck was a bit undercooked for my taste but not so much to send back. One hope is that whole grain bread be offered at opening with the great little selection of olives. Very nice ambiance at this downtown restaurant. Also has lunch and outside dining area for sunny days. Adjacent to the city fountain and staircase.

Owner Kris does a fantastic job of locally sourcing the best quality produce and meat. The preparations would be excellent for Seattle and absolutely outstanding for Port Townsend. She is also flexible in accompanying large groups and customizing the menus accordingly. This is our new favorite restaurant in Port Townsend.
