We took a table on the deck looking out towards the sunset 🌅. Our server was so nice, helpful and joined in on our joking. She made the visit even better. The baked oysters are so good and fresh.

The restaurant looks formal, but it's not stuffy. The service is friendly and the food is exceptionally good, with large portions and plenty of locally-sourced ingredients.

To be completely honest, we had low expectation coming into this restaurant as we did not expect to find such authentic experience. We were completely blown away by the quality of food (and the price tag). The restaurant serves up some of the best French...More
