Gemmell's Review

Accomplished chef Byron Gemmell's moderately priced bistro is a welcome change from the fish houses that dominate this town, particularly around the harbor. In a laid-back but romantic setting, you can begin with escargots or French onion soup before moving on to rack of lamb with thyme demi-glace or roasted duck in a seductive rum-banana liquor reduction. Finish with a soufflé—either classic chocolate or Grand Marnier. The wine list includes some reasonably priced Bordeaux. The food is rich, but a meal here won't break the bank.
