POINTS OF INTEREST
This friendly, relaxed beach restaurant is well off the beaten path in Savaneta, a small fishing town, so you know the fish is seriously fresh, often caught that day. You can dine with your toes in the sand (they have hooks for your shoes), or enjoy your meal on the wooden deck. The emphasis here is on fresh seafood—beautifully presented on colorful beds of vegetables—but there are good choices for landlubbers, too, like grilled maple leaf duck breast. The shrimp, shiitake, and blue-cheese casserole is a tried-and-true favorite kept on the menu to keep the regulars happy. For dessert, the chocolate ravioli with poached pear and ice cream is not to be missed. Arrive early for dinner to get a good table closer to the water.
