Wow, whoever invented the mussel butter deserves a medal. That stuff is beyond delicious. The John Dory fillet was served on top of the creamiest polenta and with a decent slab of mussel butter atop of the fish that slowly melted into the polenta, this...More

What an awesome place to eat. For 4 friends from out of town on a girls weekend. Everything about this place was close to perfect, from the service to the food. Not too busy the night we went as there was a festival with fireworks...More

Honest food. Great service and some of the best mixed cocktails you will taste anywhere. Reasonably priced. A cool little spot steeped in history.

Waited over 5 mins at the door to be served and seated at a table. The service was just average. The food itself didn't really do it for me for the price, taste & quality. We wont be back anytime soon.More

Very slow service. Over priced food, cost us $125 for two. Chicken skin was soggy, pizza bread and base were burnt and cheese on top not completely melted. Waitress didn’t ask if we wanted any more drinks throughout the night. Really disappointing. Wouldn’t go back.More
