“Great New Addition to Southwest Harbor”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

We have had four great experiences at this new addition to Southwest Harbor. The tapas (and whole concept of small plates) are great, especially the fish chowder and Sawyer's salad. On our first night, I was unable to make a wine decision and they generously offered 2 samples. There have been some dinner specials too, which was a nice surprise, to a relatively small menu, including last week's bacon-wrapped scallops. There is a cluster of comfortable couches and easy chairs which adds to the ambiance. The hosts/owners are enthusiastic, welcoming and receptive. Jennifer (the owner) added pillows after I made a suggestion they might make the couches more comfortable. The wait staff is very attentive and friendly. There is music every Friday night which is a nice addition to an already fun place. The place can be packed on music nights, so reservations might be helpful. They have changed their menu slightly for the sumer.

“Unexpected delight”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

We were not sure you would find a good tapas restaurant in Southwest Harbor, ME. We were wrong. All a our selections were excellent. Be sure to try the crab dip. Interesting selection of beers and ales. Giant martinis.

“Nice Ambiance; Strange and Expensive Menu”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

It is difficult to rate this place because it is unusual. I have to suspect that some of the prior ratings were done by friends of the restaurant staff. There is no way that 6 of 7 reviewers would rate it excellent, especially for the food.

It is a small place with about a dozen tables plus some bar seating. The service is friendly, and the kitchen sends the food out quickly.

But it was hard to find value on the menu, or for that matter, many appealing dishes. The meatballs were good (have you ever had a bad meatball?), but $11 for four small meatballs? Come on.

“Beautiful Room; Fine Drinks”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

To be fair, we stopped here for drinks only. The bartender was young, polite and very nice. So, can't rate the food, but our experience was very relaxing as we sat in the front window and watched cars pass by. It is a beautiful big room and comfy. The wine/drinks we had were just delicious and made a nice closure to the day.
