My favorite spot for solo, business, or romantic dining. Shawn is the chef, and many nights his wife is the server. A small menu lets you pick from one to three courses: (1) soup/salad; (2) typically includes: artichoke, glazed baby back ribs, gnocci, and other...More

This little restaurant is a short walk from the tourist spots. Excellent service and food that exceeds your expectations. Reservations are suggested. Nice selection of local wines and seasonal produce. It is also the only place I know of that serves abalone, a meal worth...More

My wife and I "found" Shawn's last weekend and returned for a wonderful dinner on Saturday. The food was very eclectic and absolutely delicious. My wife practically drooled over her orange glazed fish. My the curry coconut squash soap was yummie and my spicy ginger...More

My husband and I ate at Shawn's on a recent trip and plan to return next week. The restaurant is small and simply decorated - go for the food, not for the view or fancy surroundings. It has the warm feel of a family-run restaurant...More

To begin with, the cost of dinner is certainly NOT $6-10 as stated in this web site. More like $25 would be right. Abalone was $21. Small tuna squares was $12. A small-and I do mean small- salad was $8. Food was delicious and service...More

The food at Shawn's on Main is outstanding. Went here for a Valentine's Day dinner and was not disappointed. The restaurant is cozy and the service was friendly and attentive. Each course left us both raving about the flavors and presentation. My personal favorite was...More

Shawn's on Main is the perfect place to impress that special someone, savour delicious flavors, taste rare wines, or just get a great meal at a very reasonable price! I last enjoyed Shawn's in May 2008 and apologize for my delayed review! Everything was amazing!...More

Shawn's On Main is the typical place which offers high quality of food and service, without being pretentious or anything. The place is cute, the service impeccable and the meals, from started to dessert, delicious - yet very affordable. The choice between meals is not...More
