The pasta and dessert were amazing! I had a fettuccini with cream, spinach, Bain and walnuts that was perfectly balanced and seasoned! Just off the beaten path. Great husband and wife team! Don't pass up ab opportunity to dine here!

This is a great hideaway off the beaten trail of 5th Ave. Listed as a French Restaurant, they serve many Italian dishes. Husband and Wife proprietors, serve as host, bartender, waiter, chef and purveyors of local information. We highly recommend this pearl of a spot.

This is our favorite restaurant in Playa. We've been coming here for nearly a dozen years and we are never disappointed. The food is superb, the service is excellent and the experience is always wonderful. This place is a must.

I had a salad with salmon, and a mixed seafood dish, both were gluten free (I informed the staff) and very delicious.
