This is a good place to eat a modern fusion of local cuisine - Tapas Style, bu tin bigger servings. The dishes were great, I remember the scalops over pineapple pancake, they were large, fresh and juicy !

Great service, not too busy, attentive staff, and good dishes. There are some stellar dishes to try (spaghetti squash being one of them), others are good but not outstanding. Service as mentioned was great. Atmosphere was problematic. The overall setting seems intimate, but the kitchen...More
