Late dinner after our daughter convocated. Service was professional. Mussels were just ok. Quality of seafood wasnt great. Small mussels. Sauce was very good. Pasta dish my frends had was average. Very limited menu. Expensive for what we got. Patio was lovely.

Fine steak frites accompanied by a British Columbian Malbec made for a delicious dinner with a colleague (who reported that the halibut was also quite good). We both started with salads and skipped dessert. The restaurant was lively yet it was easy to carry on...More
