Not many options

Only one vegan entree on the vegan/vegetarian menu, the coconut quinoa with Carmel sauce. Other reviewers have raved about it but mine was not good. Couldn’t even eat it. They made me a pineapple salad special which was delicious, but not as a main course. If you’re only going to have one vegan option I do expect it to be edible, especially at an expensive restaurant for the area.

Pros: Beautiful restaurant , Great cocktails , Friendly staff

Cons: Expensive , Not many vegan options , Not that tasty

Beautiful location but the vegan portions are small for the price.

Mushroom dish was tiny for price. Linguini was tasty but small potion. Location is beautiful so worth a visit. Sit at a table by the river! Come for a drink.

Nice Vegetarian-Vegan Menu

Ask for the vegetarian-vegan menu, which has two vegan starters and two vegan entrees. I would return just for quinoa starter, which was the best of all four dishes. Not sure if there is a vegan dessert. Live music, more upscale, but worth the up charge if you are on vacation and enjoying the evening out with people who aren’t ready to go to an entirely vegetarian restaurant.
