Dining options: Reservations
Description: A new welcome addition to the range of restaurants in this tourist area which is currently full of super yachts. The Italian owner and her French chef partner are cooking at a really high standard in this small, but wonderfully formed wooden building. It's possible to watch the chef at close proximity. Each plate is lovingly prepared; all are delicious and some,for example the carpaccio of marlin or the seared tune, are exceptional.

Good lunch, pick items from "buffet". Food was good and well priced. Seating a bit cozy and tight... convenient location.

This restaurant is listed as number 3in Falmouth Maine USA but is actually in Falmouth Antigua. The map shows the restaurant to be in Falmouth Maine in a residential area where there are no commercial buildings

If going for dinner, best to make reservations to have best chance at one of the few seats in this very small restaurant. Also, be aware that if you are used to the Americans way of service, than you need to be ready to chill out a little. We found that being friendly and not in a hurry for anything is the best way to enjoy your night out...whether here or any other of the Antiguan Restaurants.
Now for our experience......we ate out every night and found this to be one of our two favorite restaurants in the Englsh Harbour area. We ended up also eating lunch here and the lunch buffet is probably the best deal and is a must do with many choices and very flavorful selections. For dinner, the Ceviche and Spicy Prawns appetizers were amazingly delicious. For dinner we watched them cut up a big Mahi and to cook several Mahi steaks with a wonderful ginger sauce. It is a small place and if you can sit inside you will have a view to their open kitchen. It's really just one room that has some room to cook behind a big table. If you can not sit inside, the seating in back was also nice and well worth the wonderful favors.

We had pasted this place a few times & it always looked welcoming, so we decided to give it a go. We hadn't booked, but the lady in charge seated us behind the main restaurant. Although it didn't have the same atmosphere as the front, it was still nice. We realised we needed to book.

The waitress came & asked us what we wanted to drink, so we ordered some water & asked if we could order our drinks after we had seen the menu and had decided what to eat. She said the lady would bring the menu in a moment.

Eventually the lady did bring the menu, but it was a photo of the menu board taken on her iPad. She proceeded to hold up her iPad & talk us through the menu. In order to see it properly, she had to zoom in to each item because it was very small. She then stood there & waited for us to choose. This was really difficult because you couldn't see the whole menu at once and her standing there put you under pressure to choose.

We had one person in our party who doesn't eat fish. There where only two meat options and unfortunately he didn't fancy either. We felt forced to make a quick decision as the lady stood there with an impatient attitude. It was very uncomfortable.

After she left, we decided we were not going to enjoy the meal because of the way they had made us feel. One of the party went to tell her we were going to leave. She was cross, charged us for the bottle of water & asked for no feedback as to way.

It was disappointing to leave because the food did look good. It was more expensive though than any of the other places we had tried in Falmouth.

My husband and I recently enjoyed an outstanding meal in this tiny, funky restaurant. The menu is small which is usually a good indication that the food will be excellent and it is. The freshness of the ingredients is beyond compare. Because of the size of the restaurant, you can watch the chefs prepare the meals and it is truly like a ballet. My husband had the snapper which was served whole, bones in. He said it was the best he has ever had. I chose the sirloin which also was superb. The vegetables were the best ever...right out of the garden. The service is excellent...this husband and wife team have hit the Mark.
