“Tooooo Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

This was one of the best recommendations we could have gotton on our visit. Everything was cooked to perfection and the service was great, courteous and helpful. We sat outside and we had a perfect day. Couldn't ask for a better lunch or atmosphere.

“Disappointment at lunch”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

My husband and I had lunch on a warm day so we sat on the pretty veranda. Sadly, though the surroundings were more than pleasant, the service was haphazard at best. We both ordered a pasta dish, one was stuffed shells and the other a ziti. Both tasted as if they had been microwaved. The tomato sauce was the same on each and was fairly tasteless. The price was higher than the food quality warranted. I know many people report a very positive experience and perhaps dinner is a better choice, but other than the location, I can't recommend it.

“A True Local Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

It was clear that most of the diners were locals at this tiny bistro in Georgetown. We sat indoors. However, there is a large outdoor dining area including a bar that is protected from the elements. The four specials made the choice difficult. The couscous with a smokey flavor was a hit with the grilled swordfish.

“A stroke of luck ... Wandered into an amazing lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

Just happened to park directly in front of this small, cozy restaurant and walked over to peruse the posted menu. It was intriguing enough to give it a try. We were blown away...amazing salads, sandwiches and soups.

“a beautiful little place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

I was going to Georgetown to visit a museum. But instead after walking on the harbour front, we discover this restaurant on Front street. Unassuming front and a passage that leads to a bar which is liked by the locals. You can choose to eat inside, on the patio in front or in the passage which has fans for the heat and heater in the cooler season.
We choose the patio. The service is warm and attentive. The tables are well decorated and covered with real tablecloths. The menu is varied and the prices are, for me, more than reasonable.
We were there for lunch and our choices tasted very good. The presentation was classy even for a lunch menu. Everything tasted excellent and it was fresh. Water was always replenish (even if we did not take a drink per say). The chef and owner seems to be very well liked by his staff.
In conclusion a nice surprise on very nice day in a very nice town.
