This restaurant came highly recommended. We were in P-Town in late Sept. It was a week night but they take buses so they were busy. We went in anyway. The atmosphere was hectic and rushed with the staff appearing stressed. So make a reservation and if they have a bus coming in skip it. We plan to try it again... More

Wonderful view, our waitress took care of all 12 with us without one bit of attitude..food was good to great. I guess the Monti Cristo was a favorite, I had meatball sandwhich and it was also very good. But the waitress made our visit worth navigating through a construction zone to get there!

We walked through the lovely backstreets to get here at night it was a beautiful setting on the water. not too upmarket but just casual, food was good and the staff were nice also. It is a bit out of town which suited us near our Inn.

If you want fine dining, its on the menu but if you just want a burger or chili. they have that, too. Reasonably priced and the view is breathtaking.

I came here with 4 friends, one being a PTown local, on a weekend early evening during the Early Bird Special period. That's what us old and/or frugal people do- knowing we are going to get an excellent meal at a good price. So here we were, with a reservation. We were seated immediately upon arrival in the main room,... More

My husband and I enjoyed our meals at this restaurant. The Salmon with roasted Brussels sprouts and veal Parmesan with noodle like pasta were delicious. Great ocean side dining!
