Our 3rd visit and we love the food, atmosphere and service. Sadly we were sat next to a loud couple that made conversation with the couple on the other side. We could not hear the other speaking in our group of two.

Was here for my birthday Jan 29, Wednesday night! Oysters so fresh and yummy, there was a 10% off bottles of wine... that's always good. We did hte 3 course dinner, salad Ahi tuna and Crem Brule... OMG all soooo good. Wonderful night. Service was good, a little lax at times as it wasn't a busy night, had to get her attention but lovely person, mostly very well taken care of!

It was crazy busy in the restaurant, the wait staff were very polite and apologetic. This was our second visit and we will most definitely make it a regular occurrence. We love the ambience, the menu and the location.

We picked this spot for my birthday and were blown away by the quality of service and food. We ordered the carpaccio and bruschetta as starters, and the ahi tuna special and lemongrass mussels for our mains, each prepared with its distinct flavour and care.

Our hostess, Kimberley was very friendly and balanced well between responding to our needs and creating an ambience for us to have the chatty meal we were looking to have together.

We already want to come again and bring our friends and family as well, and highly recommend it to everyone!

Always pleased with presentation and very good selection. Wine rather expensive but no pressure in serving it. Our calamari was rather rubbery this time, always a delicious appetizer but found it hard to swallow this time. Your chowder is awesome and maybe would ask for calamari cooked a little longer.

My steak was absolutely ice cold...I didn't complain as I didn't want to make a scene with my client and his wife that I was hosting for a Xmas dinner.
Putting cooked steak on a piece of cold wood instead of a plate is a terrible idea!!!

Date night! This was one of the best dining experiences I have ever had, from the moment we walked in. The staff were very attentive and we could see the kitchen area, as it is an open concept.
the weather was nice so we felt summery and ordered a dozen oysters, crab cakes, and smoked salmon flatbread to share - then for mains we had the seafood linguine and lobster ravioli. So full but we still ordered one dessert to share - our server said it was the lightest one they had, and it was a good size, not big but just enough to share, creme brulee.

can not wait to come back again! very soon

All I can say is WOW. We went during late lunch, so we didn’t get to see it during dinner time but the view was magnificent and the service was good.

The food is truly cooked with love and passion, we had the crab cakes, jumbo prawns and Thai lemongrass Mussels to share for appetizers, they were delicious!
For our main course, I had the seafood linguini and my partner had the Ravioli.

Highly highly recommend!

Can’t wait to check it out during dinner time with my wife!

We used to love this restaurant before our last visit. We had brought friends from Ontario for a nice dinner and sunset and were extremely unhappy. From the food to the service it was a sad change in what used to be one of our favorite spots.

We love this restaurant and try to go during the week as the weekends can be fairly busy. When the restaurant is busy and full the noise level is very high and the service isn’t quite the same as when the restaurant isn’t quite so busy. The food is ALWAYS incredible, drinks are great and the service is generally excellent so long as they’re not too busy. I will always highly recommend this restaurant based on the food quality, the location on the beach and the overall experience we have had here.

Disclaimer the waitress told us (at the end of the meal) that the main over was broken baking up the kitchen. But took over an hour to get our entrees and they were not full. Dishes served a minute apart and not together. Food was decent but I expected a little more for the price. Beautiful location on the coast.

The food was average and very expensive. The martini was weak. The windowsill was disgustingly dirty and the decor was not very nice with unfinished tables. The service was good but the noise level was really loud.

Lovely ambiance- this restaurant was the most popular on the avenue. Service was fantastic, the food was good the appetizers could have been better- the special was the best meal vs ordering from the menu. I had the halibut and my husband had the seafood pot- Overall great place- I would go there again-
