We have been on previous visits to the island. We like to sit outdoors under a heater. The food is very good, as is the service. They carry a Sicilian Pinot Grigio called Stemmari that is fantastic! It's priced very nicely too. I just love it. In this visit we enjoyed oysters, the smoked fish pie and the fluke. We loved everything except the fluke. (It was tasty but it was in a batter that we didn't expect, so that wasn't too appealing. My fault for not asking the waiter how the preparation.)The accompaniments were very good though. We will certainly return!
We visited one of our favorite restaurants only to find that the new chef is not producing the same quality meals as in years past. All of our meals were fair if even that. Kitchen was extremely slow and the restaurant was not even close to being full. Our server was very attentive. I am hoping that things will turn around. The atmosphere is great and a cozy spot for a small party of 2-3 couples. In the meantime, there are plenty of other nantucket restaurants that serve better quality meals.
