Had dinner last FridayJuly 7. Dinner was wonderful. The salad was wonderful with all sort of vegetables, the salmon was cooked to perfection, the sides of fettuccini pasta and fresh baked bread. Good French restaurant, right on the pier

Good choice for breakfast. I had some of the best waffles that I have ever eaten. Others who joined me also enjoyed what they ordered. There is both indoor and outdoor seating, as well as a bakery counter area.

Baguettes limited, so reserve or buy in advance. Cakes pricey, but well worth it. Talk to the chef. A little bit of France in a desolate wasteland. Service people a bit too chatty for me. I do not want a friend, I want a professional...More
