Though small, this restaurant offers all that one could ask for - attentive service, cosy ambience, great food quality, and reasonable prices. My husband and I would definitely be back. :)

I had a wonderful time here. It’s in lower Gibsons, in a cute little rooftop of a little home. The food is spectacular and the location is amazing. This is really fine dining Gibsons-style.
