We have eaten there 2 days in a row. About 15 min from our resort. Well worth the drive. Good food, good service, and a delightful atmosphere.

If you enjoy great French Onion Soup, this is the place to come. The flavor was amazing. I haven't had French Onion soup this good since we were in Europe. The patisseries were amazing. There is a wide selection of deserts.
