Made a trip to Gulfport this past weekend to attend my wife's high school reunion. Many years ago, as a young Air Force sergeant, we'd lived in Ocean Springs and always loved the cozy, small-town atmosphere. We've been back many times over the years, but seldom had time for more than a quick drive through town. This time we decided to stop for lunch and, as luck would have it, picked the little orange-colored cottage with the name "Cambios" displayed. I will ever be glad that we did so. As another reviewer has noted, stepping through the door was like being taken to an intimate little eatery in Paris. The walls are lined with pictures of famous authors and other notables favored by the owner/chef. Some may decry the lack of more space but I think if there were more tables the quality of the food and service may suffer. As it is, the dozen or so tables allows the chef (and, believe me, he knows his way around a kitchen) to devote more attention to the superb fare he prepares for your waiting palate.
Everything about our experience was top-drawer. The friendly greeting and helpfulness of the hostess, the efficiency and knowledge of our waitress, the presentation of our meal and the food - - ah, the food! Lunch is a 3-course meal. One chooses a single item from the menu of salad/appetizer, main dish and dessert. Portions are reasonably sized and served on beautiful plates. We both opted for the Spanish Omelet for our main course. The most delicious omelet I've ever had and topped with bite-size chunks of filet mignon. And all this for far less than one would pay for similar quality in an "upscale" restaurant.
By way of wrap-up I'd like to say that in my 78 years, this is the first time I've been inclined to write a review of a restaurant. Need I say we'll be back? And, as I told the hostess, it would be my pleasure to give them an on-screen testimonial should they ever produce a commercial.
