that offers guests pristine water views and creates the
perfect atmosphere for al fresco dining at its best.
We made an open table reservation and were
immediately taken to our table outside overlooking the water.
It was just about sunset so the timing was perfect. We
ordered drinks , clam chowder and Caesar salad to start. All
were very good.
Then for dinner we had the seafood scampi -
wow! Not the cheapest item on the menu but really
wonderful. Mini lobster tails, shrimp, and scallops over a
little angel hair pasta with a bit of tomato and garlic.
It was fabulous!!
The waiter was very attentive, though we
did wait a bit to pay the check. We assume they are
always busy here, but seemed to handle it very well.
