Cozy and hidden bistro with excellent food! My business partner and I stopped in on a Thursday evening for dinner. We enjoyed the pre-fixe dinner of a mixed green salad with goat cheese & candied walnuts, beef stroganoff, and finished with pound cake topped with vanilla ice cream & salted caramel sauce. Yum! It is BYOB which we didn't know... More

Three of us enjoyed dinner here during the Christmas stroll weekend. The restaurant was offering a pre fixe menu which consisted of four courses and each course had two or three options. OMG! Every course was better than the last!!! We stuffed ourselves and were in a food coma! The restaurant is very small. I counted the number of seats.....there... More

Although very small inside, we were able to sit all six together. The breakfast was fantastic and lots of food given. I'd definitely recommend this place before leaving the island.

This is tiny, whole in the wall kind of place. There are only about 8 tables with simple but quaint decor. They do not serve alcohol but you can BYOB. My wife, daughter and I stopped here for lunch and we all agreed that it was ONE of the best lunches out EVER. The server was friendly and efficient. HIGHLY... More
