My wife and I, along with our daughter and son in law, enjoyed dinner here on 10/29/16. A beautifully kept old building that years ago was a mercantile structure carrying a variety of things needed by town folk. Original tin ceilings and acoustics that facilitated conversation. Lani was our greeter and server, thoroughly professional but with a gentle, pleasant personality.... More

Expertly prepared, beautifully presented delicious food in a lovely and charming setting. Attentive and informative service. Nick (the owner) was our chef and Lani (his wife) our server. These folks know how to do fine dining. Starters, salad, entrees, coffee and desserts each perfect. Not inexpensive but not exorbitant either. In fact worth every penny. A delightful dining experience indeed.

Came there for dinner after a long trip. We enjoyed a well prepared, original dinner all on vegetarian basis. The wine was excellent, the service friendly and attentive. I can only recommend this place.

Pagaea was recommended by the owner of the Inn we were staying at. There are two parts to this restaurant, a lounge and fine dining. We ate at the lounge and were happy with our choice. We had the fish tacos and root vegetable ravioli which was on the specials menu. No room for dessert unfortunately.

The portions were small, the wine was super expensive, and the fish entree was overcooked and dry. Now the creme brulee was very delicious. Now we should have gone into the Lounge where the food is affordable. A big mistake on our part.

Wonderful fusion restaurant using locally sourced ingredients. An excellent meal; perhaps the finest restaurant in Vermont.

Lonely planet said it was great restaurant but we ate bad food starting with pork belly. Terribile. The pork was inedible and it was not eaten. little better the other dishes.

We ate in the lounge area at Pangaea, recommended by our host at our B&B. Loved the atmosphere, as well as the great food. They were busy so service was not especially fast, but as we were in no hurry, we just enjoyed the ambiance. We did not have reservations but that was not a problem, we got a table... More

I held the rehearsal luncheon for our son's wedding at this restaurant and it was wonderful! Lani, one of the managers was extremely helpful and worked with me on menu choices, timing and even provided wild flowers for the tables. All our guests commented on how delicious the food was and we couldn't be more pleased. Both the food and... More

Every part about this dining experience was lavish and wonderful - from the starter to the salad to the entree. We were blown away by the quality of the food - far superior to the Pangaea Lounge next door which we sampled a few nights later.
