Excellent food, ambience, and service. There were eight of us, and a great time was had by all. The steaks were cooked perfectly, and the fish dishes were fresh and delicious. We had a variety of wonderful desserts which we shared.

This quaint, small, decadent spot was perfect. Only 8 or 9 tables so I’m sure the wait can get long but it’s worth it. Some of the best mussels I’ve ever had in my life and the wine was delicious. Staff was delightful. Highly recommend.
