Lovely restaurant in quaint downtown Sandusky right near the lake. Varied menu that worked for vegetarians and meat eaters, and friendly attentive service. Loved the pizza and salads. A very happy surprise to find such a high quality restaurant in this small town.

Great atmosphere and food. Top 10 best meal I've had. Foie gras was awesome as was the duo of duck. I highly recommend you go here if you are anywhere near Sandusky or are in town on vacation. You won't regret it.
