Wonderful food; great view if you're lucky with the weather!
A fabulous setting, overlooking the bay, with lovely big windows, and an outside terrace if it's warm enough.
The food is superb: a great variety of ultra-fresh seafood, skillfully prepared, and beautifully presented. The three of us shared several starters: the seafood bruschetta was piled high with generous amounts of scallops, shrimps & calamari, topped with avocado strips, and sitting on basil leaves with a drizzle of oil. And the lobster ceviche was brilliantly vivid in flavour.
2 of us had the famous lobster roll as a main. Wonderful, buttery lobster, and a little pot of coleslaw on the side. Philippa's grilled salmon on vegetables was lovely - I can't remember the exact description on the menu, but looking at my photo reminds me of the imaginative and delicious mixture of vegetables, with a buttery-creamy sauce.
We were pretty full by then, but shared a slice of the (also justly famous) key lime pie. I have a photo of a totally empty plate with three forks on it, which says it all!
Lovely, friendly service, and very reasonable prices given the quality of the food. One to return to - maybe when the sun is shining!
