Great vistas Of the water from the top of the stairs. Indoor or rooftop seating on a clear day. An extensive menu—choose the quiche du jour—It is outstanding. Service was very good and prices midrange.

Large serving of hot mussels in excellent broth. Some of the very best mussels I have ever eaten, served by Maddie, an efficient and pleasant server.

Our team stopped by after the Ragnar relay, last weekend. Arrived shortly after they opened. Had a "Ragnar" event menu. The entire group enjoyed the interesting and flavorful take on standards (hamburger, cheese sandwich, and others). Great view if you can get outdoor seating. Kevin,...More

I have been in search of the world's best croque madam. I found it in Langley at the Prima Bistro! Also the Penn Cove mussel preparation alone is worth the ferry ride from Seattle! Charming, friendly, casual place in the cute town of Langley. Wonderful...More

I'm a weekly diner there but am not qualified to answer your question, since my husband and I have no dietary issues. I also suggest contacting the restaurant (ask to speak to Jenn or Sieb, the owners).
