Small, cute restaurant. A creative menu sets this place apart from others. Homemade soup of the day and other menu staples are made with care and attention to detail. More upscale and not a quick sandwich place. Service is attentive. Prices are on the higher side.

I've been here twice now and have had wonderful meals. Nice selection of wines, great service and some interesting menu offerings. My monk fish main course was well prepared and delicious. Bread pudding dessert did not disappoint. Perhaps the best fine dining in Anacortes?

Recommended by the host at 13 Moons and he was right on. We liked lunch so much we returned for dinner the same day. I loved the French Onion Soup and warm Caesar Salad with a delicious roasted rye ale on draft for lunch, and made from scratch clams in shell chowder and Dijon Grouper with brandied crimini mushrooms and...

A'Town Bistro likes to market itself as a classy place. It's anything but... My wife and I are not big eaters and wanted to spilt a salad and an entrée. We also had soups and a few drinks, so the $ size of the bill would not have been a problem. We were told they do not spilt orders but... More

This is our favorite higher end restaurant in Anacortes. The food is always excellent...my favorite is the pork loin which is excellent by any standards. The boar burger is also a favorite. Beer, wine and drinks are all top notch. I highly recommend this restaurant.

We had the irish pate as a starter. It arrived on a beautifully composed plate and we loved every bit of it. My pasta was done perfectly and my husband enjoyed his Moules/Frites. We sat at the bar and enjoyed a great conversation with a fellow diner and ended up exchanging emails. Just a warm and enjoyable atmosphere. Gina, our... More

Camecto ABistro on a whim after visiting the San Juan islands with the family. The food source is local, that is what interested us. We were greeted with good, mellow music and friendly staff who had books for the kids. Kids menus are on the front cover. Nice cold water as soon as you sit down. Menu is uncomplicated, but... More

Can't imagine there is a better restaurant in Anacortes. We enjoyed the warm atmosphere, the fine service, and oh that clam chowder. Best ever chowder loaded with all the clams, potatoes and finely seasoned broth...clearly a work of culinary Art. It will spoil you forever for clam chowder. Forget those gloppy, creamy messes with a few clams here and there.... More

We ordered an arugula and beet salad to split along with a pasta dish as neither of us were very hungry. Bread is not served with the meal but available for an additional cost. The bistro is small and seemed to be filled with mostly locals. The service was adequate and friendly but we felt the prices were high even... More

We had what I think is the best fish and chips ever - perfectly fresh fish, a perfect crust with great fries. Absolutely yummy! However, can't rave about the watermelon salad - three small wedges of watermelon sprinkled with feta and tiny bit of prosciutto and balsamic. Flavors didn't really come together - and kinda pricy at $13. The roaring... More
