We were celebrating our 35th anniversary and my brother and his wife's 30th and it could not have been a more enjoyable evening. Philip and his assistant took care of everything, including the frequent serving of the wine! We had booked a... More

Philip set a beautiful table outside and the wine selections were excellent. We started with the roasted zucchini and curry soup. Simply amazing! Next course was smoke wahoo with capers and wasabi mayonnaise. Again, a perfectly prepared dish. Our main... More

You must book at least one dinner. You will not regret it. Everything was excellent, from the presentation to the portions. Philip takes care of everything. We booked a four course meal for four adults. My favorite was the lobster bisque.
