I had oysters, extremely fresh and extremely good. They are served only with a piece of lemon - very good. I would suggest, to serve darker bread - as best the... More

We like the place. You need to book. Good valet parking. Service is good, No negative remarks on food, good wine suggestions. Not really romantic, meaning you 're seldom alone, and as in similar restaurants, the available space is well used. Cheap? No, but in good company , never mind!

Sad that this place doesn't make a bigger effort to be friendly with their guests. There was a blond lady extremely arrogant from when we walked in the door. However, the food and the wine was very nice.

Long list of wines Do not miss the Crème Brûlée with roses. Try to check twice your reservation. It is not... More

A fresh and modern restaurant with a nice atmosphere and professional staff. We had a seat in the bar and had a memorable night thanks to good food and attentive service. The oysters were very good. Next time we will try the one of the seafood platters.

This restaurant is an excellent choice for seafood. Great plates with oysters, always fresh food, very well cooked fish and delicious deserts (specifically apple pie and crème brûlée) Highly recommended both for visits with friends or for business.
