A sweet restaurant that has a small menu with fresh big tastes. A great place to have a business lunch or to meet a friend and enjoy a long and leisurely meal.

We stumbled on this restaurant which feels like a Parision Bistro. Best food in Portland says a longtime Portlandite. I was on my way to Duck Fat, but very happy to discover this jewel.

This fine restaurant on Middle Street in Portland Maine was recommended to us by friends and we will be forever grateful to them. This place is small in terms of dining space (capacity under 20 seats) but the food is home cooked and locally grown and done with both pride and perfection. The staff of two servers are very earnest and make sure that everything is served just right. There is a collection of local bottled beers and a great selection of fine wines. The deserts are hand made and are decorated right in front of you if you sit at the bar (highly recommended). There is a kind of authenticity to this place that I like: you feel that you are dining finely in a busy port city and you are part of it. A'yeh - we will be back!

A small restaurant with exquisite food.
A wonderful dining experience!
The chef is highly regarded in Portland and in the Food industry.
Menu is carefully selected and draws on local foods.
When we had the opportunity to go out to dinner with a highly regarded in the area, this was his first choice.
Have to seek it out, it isn't a restaurant that you will easily stumble upon.
Great for good friends, couples, special occasions.

Menu is limited but the food was good and the wine was good. The restaurant is tiny, so be sure to make a reservation.
