The friendly service, beautiful decor, and delicious food made this restaurant worth every dollar and was my favourite place to eat on the trip. The server made sure my friend’s birthday was celebrated and he went above and beyond in ensuring my allergies were accommodated. The bananas foster is a must!

Kevin Templet you did it again the special was more than special. I also have to add that the charbroiled oysters were fantastic and some of the best I have ever tasted. The only regret was that they ran out of the Pistachio cheesecake.
