Chef John Pontius consistently turns out wonderful, affordable food full of the best Mediterranean and local influences and ingredients at his beloved restaurant along U.S. 6. Housed in a handsome Arts and Crafts–inspired structure, this spot has long been a local favorite. Appetizers are especially good, among them oysters baked in a white wine-cream sauce and jerk-spiced duck salad with a raspberry vinaigrette. The Wellfleet paella and the roast duck with cranberry-orange
sauce draw rave reviews. Off-season hours vary, so call ahead.
