A real gem traveling north to avoid Interstate 95 nightmare. Fabulous meal at a high top near the front door. Will take this route north again just to enjoy some of their special dishes.

My husband and I had the lump crab and tuna sashimi seaweed appetizer, the assorted greens salad and the giant shrimp and lump crab over a crispy leak and potato cake. An amazing dinner, we finished every bite and enjoyed the friendly and attentive service.

Excellent dinner! The restaurant is quite small and a bit noisy, but we sat at a high top near the front and had no trouble conversing. Service was very good and very attentive. Can highly recommend the crab bisque and beef tournedos.

We enjoyed a crab and fish dish on a quiet mid-week evening at this cosy bistro. We got the impression that the kitchen closes for orders earlier than in bigger cities so you should not go out to dinner too late

What a wonderful meal!!!! I had the beef tenderloin and a bisque or crab soup for an appetizer. Both were incredible. A small, quaint atmosphere, perfect for a couple to have a nice romantic meal!

This was the restaurant my wife chose and she was on-target. She had the halibut that was perfectly prepared and tastey. I had the seafood fettucini. All previous comments are spot on. You will be delighted with the quality and service.Go...savor and enjoy.
