I hate publishing this review because I know the crowds will come but hey, they deserve it.

Without a doubt this is the best restaurant in Fort Myers. Yes the menu is limited, and no, they aren't open 7 days a week, but when they are and when you eat there for the first time you will find the food is amazing, the prices are more than reasonable, and being closed on Sunday and Monday isn't going to really make a difference.

If you get a chance sit at the counter and watch your food being prepared. Not only is it like being at home but Xavier and company will often interact with you. Everything on the menu is excellent, especially the Truffle fries.

There is also a Chef's table in the back. if you have 5 to 7 friends whom you want to have a special dinner with as them about reserving the Chef's table. You will not be disappointed.

This place was great! I was in the area for work, and looked on Trip Advisor for local recommendations. I am so glad I found this place! The menu is eclectic with a European bistro type flare. The restaurant itself was small, but the atmosphere was great. Very laid back place with seats along the bar so you can chat with the staff while your food is being prepared. This place is hard to find as it's off of the main road, but don't be mistaken. It's an incredible find!

The food was fantastic!! The flatbreads are pricey, but the portions are huge! Enough for 3 people to share. The burgers were amazing; Angus beef was tender and add some bleu cheese or Brie cheese, and it melts in your
mouth! One of the staff members with the tattoos was yummy as well! Easy on the eyes for sure!
All around, the place was great! I will definitely return, as I'm in the area frequently for work.

Fresh, delicious, innovative food. Everything on the menu is good. The wine is generously poured. The flatbreads are fantastic and huge. The steak frite is better than any I've had in France. The beet salad is addictive!

Had lunch with some friends. Cool menu with great options. Flatbread was outstanding. Burger with brie was awesome. Food served in a fair amount of time. Only draw back is the prices are rather high. I will go back.
