I have a hard time with the prices on San Juan Island, that's just the truth. However, if you can shut your eyes and pretend the prices are within the realm of normal (which they are, but only just within that realm), then you'll appreciate the flavors at The Place. The bouillabaisse was out of this world; both my mother and I ordered it and loved it. The freshest specimens of shellfish and fish floated in a coconut broth, and while there was an essence of Thai, the soup didn't approach the bizarre lengths that so many fusion dishes did. It was just solid. My husband had the cooked oysters, while my father went his typical safe route and opted for the grilled chicken spaghetti. No one had a complaint about one bite of the food. I think the only annoyance was that the bill was over $300 after we added in tip. Yes, we spent every last cent of it, but I think we're just spoiled. We're from a town where dollars stretch more deliciously. Anyway, no one gouged us. In fact, the service was as pleasant as it could be, and I think we would have paid extra for that view under any circumstances.
