We had a wonderful dinner. Chicken pan seared, lamb with couscous and steak. One was better than the other cooked to perfection, appetizers were exceptional as well. Try the octopus appetizer, or the scallops. The tartar is also good, but spicy. But be sure to leave room for desert. The sorbet assortment is nice and there is always room for sorbet. The chocolate cake is decadent. But the avocado ice cream and the raspberry pop are unique and so tasty. Let them pair wines for you and the result is not just delicious, but memorable.

We had drinks at the fire pit area, which was nice, especially at night. Service was fast and friendly.

Came here with my wife for our 1 year anniversary and could not have had a better meal. We started with an old fashion and a martini which were well made and tasty. We had the octopus to start and it was delicious. We each had the 8 oz. fillets and shared ratatouille. Steak was incredibly delicious and tender. Service was excellent. They were great about helping us eat gluten free. Highly recommended and must be best in Marco.

Very beautiful restaurant for couples. Not recommended for children. We had the dry aged steaks and they were wonderful.
