We had dinner here last night. The waiter was attentive and friendly. The food was delicious. I had Dover sole and my husband had the rack of lamb, and finished with the grand Marnier shuffle. Would highly recommend.

Sorry for the delay - we stayed at Hotel Bonaventure, about an $11 taxi ride to Bonaparte. Large hotel, rooms need to be updated, but are a good size, only stayed 2 nights. Parking $25/nt
