Dried out halibut. Inattentive waitstaff. Heavy unmovable table was hard to get in and out of. A beautiful woman dinner companion saved the night!!!

Some truly inspired flavor pairings! Tomato burrata salad with walnut pesto, white asparagus soup with crispy egg, and rhubarb tart with rosemary buttermilk ice cream are a must if you are lucky enough to visit while they are on the menu!

Always delicious. Mostly great service (a couple "what is going on?" moments, but in general fine, and the food was always great). A little morning walk from our casita, and it was pleasant. Sometimes we ate outside in the sun, othertimes, indoors. Highly recommend.
