We had the staple chicken on the menu, hake, and lobster ravioli. All were wonderful, but the lobster ravioli was a standout. Not a huge portion, but done to perfection.

Great bar with interesting drinks. All dishes made with local ingedients. Roasted squash with beans and carrots on puréed celery is tremendous. Not to mention the homemade pasta! Smaller dining area, intimate ambiance. Desserts are fantastic if you've got room. Don't pass this up in...More
