Had a lovely lunch here. Many, many choices and all of them good. The lobster stew was to die for. Lots of variety in the menu, great service and beautiful views.

Always fun to meet friends for drinks or meals at this welcoming place. Super fun to sit outside in the summer and enjoy delicious fare.
