Thank you Don. So glad to know that our unique patio setting was well enjoyed. We were pleased to feature a beautiful selection of citrus and palm trees to add to the patio experience this summer. We look forward to seeing you soon. Arlene Schuppener

Stopped for lunch and enjoyed a delicious mixed salad and the margherita pizza. Great thin crust pizza with the right amount of cheese and basil. My partner had the Americano pizza which he enjoyed. We highly recommend the pizza.

Coho supper and grilled chicken were perfectly cooked, tasty, and well presented. Beef stew, greek salad, and a pork cutlet over undercooked pasta were practically inedible and dull. Their desserts were varied and quite tasty
