Fodor's Review

Outside, giant, green fiberglass mussels play on the roof; inside, the real things are steamed for three minutes in the whole shell or grilled on the half shell. Choose a light sauce for both steaming and for topping: white wine, garlic, and fresh herbs or coconut, chili, and coriander. There are also smoked and marinated mussel salads, platters, and tasty mussel chowder. Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc perfectly pairs with almost any dish on the menu. There are also vegetarian, pasta, and meat choices for those who, shocking as it is, don't fancy the local treasures. On sunny days, head to the courtyard.
