Warm rolls, Cajun calamari, Shrimp Curry, Ribeye, Seafood linguine, creme brûlée... all delicious. Caesar salad dressing could use some garlic but good. Very accommodating to requests and dietary restrictions. Server, believe her name started with “Kirs”, absolutely wonderfully!

Serving Whitby for over 10 years, casual, fine dining and friendly service. Specialize in seafood, premium grade steak and delicious sauce pasta. Highly recommended to make reservations for dinner and lunch on weekdays and Saturday dinner. Gourmet breakfast on Saturday (9:00 am to 2:00 pm), sorry no reservations. We believe in fresh, in-house sauces, dressings, desserts and more. Catering available offsite.
