Sidney has some fine restaurants but this is my favorite. The location is low key, the food is fresh and tasty, the service friendly, and the price is fair, Seriously, what more do you want?

We enjoyed a falafel wrap and some halibut. The falafel wrap was very good and so were the yam fries. The halibut was fine but had thicker batter than I prefer with good quality fish. The ceasar salad with my fish was good quality and...More
