We enjoyed dessert and wine here. We like to go to puruse the wine and food selection especially to make a meal at home. Clean and great service without a lot of pretense. Very friendly owners and wait people. Always the same with each visit.

Stopped by to read the menu on their window before they opened for lunch. A man who I believe is the owner/chef unlocked the door and stepped outside to explain their offerings to me. He told me of their specials and gave me a to-go...More

This was our favorite restaurant on SPI. Small plates were delicious. Daughter was happy with child's cheese pita pizza. Wines on offer were also well chosen and not expensive. Other reviewers have mentioned the carrot cake. It's great if you like a tropical twist with...More
