Somehow we've missed this restaurant for the last few years,but now it is a must-do on the list whenever we go to Anna Maria Island. The macadamia grouper IS the reason to go. It is incredible! Cute inside too, tucked away in a strip mall.

First let me apologize, that entire scenario is completely unacceptable. We had 2 chances to serve you a delicious sampler platter and both my employees dropped the ball. Thank you for your feedback so I can fix that asap. In the future use your good...More

Bertrand is the chef and works only with locals markets, and fresh produces. He makes fresh bread everyday. And we also have wonderful French wines.
Each weak a new specialty for your pleasure.
Come to see us....
Bon appetit!!!!!
