Stopped in despite the place being entirely empty. It's a little open roadside restuarant in the middle of Brassalito. We realized upon looking at the menu we were in for a treat, and the chef did not dissapoint. Great food with fantastic sauces, and an elegant presentation. Our only regret is that we didn't get to return for additional visits.

We stayed here for a dinner. No wonder we were the only ones for the entire night. All they had was 3 cans of beer then they went to borrow the third one from another place so my wife and I could have 2 each. At the end, we got charged twice for everything and left with a bad taste... More

Very friendly service and good food at a reasonable price. The ceviche was excellent and served with a nice portion of tasty toast points. The mahi-mahi was tender and flavorful. The red snapper was cooked to perfection (I would have loved a bigger fish but the price was right). My daughter asked for one of their traditional rice dishes. .it... More

Inventive and ambitious. The chef hasrecently moved to Hotel Nanny-hope that survives as this is good quality locally sourced food, and well presented.
