I’ve been coming here once a year for several years now and I’ve never been disappointed. Short menu of modern takes on maritime classics. Executed perfectly in a very picturesque setting. This year I had the fish cakes, mom had the potato tart. Outstanding.

Small restaurant on the bay requiring reservations. Pleasant staff with delicious food and an unobstructed view of the water from the deck seating.
