Found this restaurant while looking for somewhere without burgers or TV! Pleasantly surprised by the variation of food on the menu, and enjoyed a quality meal. Good relaxed service, and would return again. Best food so far on our trip, and well priced.

Chose this place almost entirely based on TA reviews. It was the right choice for sure but was fairly concerned when we arrived for our 6:30 PM reservation and it was very empty. The city seemed fairly busy the first weekend in July when we...More
