Had dinner on balcony overlooking gulf. Great view. The cold seafood appetizer was fresh, ample, and very reasonably priced. Lobster claws (shelled), oysters, and mussels were great. Cognac dressing was outstanding. Only thing missing was clams, but the overall presentatation made up for it. Craig was friendly and just attentive enough. Lobster Bisque and dinner was top notch.

We almost left just after arriving because we were completed ignored by at least three staff members upon arrival and that our reservation for an outside table with a beach view was not immediately respected. However, our very skilled server Tom enticed us to say with his friendly welcome and his promise to move us outside at the first opportunity.... More

sitting on a balcony overlooking the gulf and watching the sun descend into the sea without a splash - pretty good way to spend an hour or so and even more enjoyable if the food is good and the wine decent. you can get all of this together with courteous service at this Bistro. careful of the traffic otherwise you'll...

First off the location is excellent and there is plenty of parking in the area. Reservations are highly recommended. The food was fresh and delicious and our server was very attentive to our needs. Would definitely go back.

We went here expecting great things. It was good but not brilliant. The food was lovely but the service a bit slow and not very personal. We hade cancelled our reservation for later this week to go elsewhere

The atmosphere and service would compare to any decent restaurant in U.K. The food was superb. We had coconut prawns then I had steak ,my wife had fish --both excellent and beautifully presented. The staff were attentive without being over the top and it was an all round lovely evening despite the torrential rain outside. The restaurant is upstairs above... More

So we happened upon this gem by accident. We were looking for a parking space and the attendant suggested the bistro. It was packed and we didn't have a reservation. The Manager Christina worked some magic and got us a nice spot on the back deck. Very private, with views of both the gulf and bay. Our waiter Craig was... More

This is a nice atmosphere to stop if you want to eat and drink outside. The fish I had for lunch was delicious and cooked properly. Nice selection of tropical drinks and the staff was friendly.

Good food and great location. We booked a table to view the sunset, however unfortunately were put at the back of the restaurant so unable to see which was a real shame as that was the reason we went here.
