Wonderful atmosphere, service, staff and food. Get there before they close in October 2018 . Reservations required. Ask about the tasting menu with or without wine pairings.

found this restaurant on open table and boy am I happy we went there for dinner, a true gem for Lunenburg!! Food was excellent and the customer service was outstanding to say the least. A bit pricy but well worth it!!

As a solo traveler, I can pay complete attention to details of a fine restaurant. The small space is friendly, appointed simply, and is NOT noisy. The wait staff can describe every dish in detail and make excellent recommendations, the wine list reflects the excellent...More

Definitely. We were able to have a few reservation options within a week of arriving in the area last August but it's a very popular restaurant and well worth going. I think the only thing they had was around 10 p.m. so... More
