Our second visit and again we were not disappointed, except that halibut was not on the menu which I remember was so very perfectly prepared. The calamari and salmon special dinners were delicious. Yes I will return every time we are in Sitka!

Tiny restaurant, reservations highly recommended, large portions, divine food. We even had a fascinating discussion about bears and nature photography with the couple at the next (close) table. Portions are so large that we were glad they forgot to bring our soup and salad.

By far the best restaurant in Sitka. A little pricey but well worth it. A cozy little treasure. Wine and food are excellent.
