The service was fantastic and the food was exceptional. We ate there twice and both times the experience was top notch. The seafood chowder was a favorite, so was the smoked fish plate.

It's a shop plus restaurant with mostly barstools, excellent dishes, but rather small and premium. No kids menue

We loved eating here so much that we came back for dinner a second night. The seafood chowder and smoked fish platter were absolutely delicious. You can tell that the ingredients are fresh and high quality. The oysters are great too! Would definitely come back!

Great location, extremely fresh products (I had tuna fished hours ago). Very small list of drinks, but some recipes are unique (a Ceasar with a big smoked salmon piece in the drink...). And the oysters are the main attraction.
