Latest Review

" Location was great as it's right next to the i-site for the bus, or down the street from the ferry. My only qualm was with noise. If you're on the bottom floor, any walking whatsoever above is incredibly noisy. There are hours for being upstairs but of course it's not always respected. Good kitchen and nice staff. "
