The culinary fare offered here is a contemporary take on American cuisine. It's not so much what you eat, however, as the ambiance in which you eat it. Here that means candlelight, views of the ocean lapping on the beach across the street, a kind of Morocco-meets-Mediterranean-meets-tropical atmosphere that somehow works.
