We were sent by our Bed & Breakfast to this place. Very small restaurant. Warm welcome by the owner with helpful recommendations on the menu and the daily specials. We had Uni as a starter (great) and then Tuna (Japanese style) and Boullabaise. Both were...More

I believe this place is living off of past laurels. The two of us eat out once a week so we are not new to the restaurant scene. One dish was fish stew, can't spell Boullelbaise, it had zero flavor; skin on the pieces of...More

This is a tiny little restaurant in Little River just outside of Mendocino California. This restaurant is on the back side of a gas station/convenience store. Great view of the ocean and the food was outstanding. The bread is made fresh daily and the food...More
