The food is sophiscated but the service is very “Maritime” meaning laid back, not rushed, jovial, and congenial. You simply cannot go wrong choosing this restaurant any time of year.

It was very tasty, there was a line up but went quickly. Polite staff and very good food. The location is good, a little bit tricky for parking, but luckily it was a sunday morning and were able to park at Staples next door.
