Fodor's Expert Review Pelican Café Bistro
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
The hum of conversation and a glimpse of the busy kitchen through the open hatch give this restaurant a relaxed vibe. A horseshoe-shape bar in dark wood contrasts with the cream-color walls displaying local art. The food is adventurous and resolutely fresh, with the source of the ingredients carefully listed on the menu. The dishes vary with the seasons and the conditions on the high seas, but you might find delicious sea bream with saffron-herb mash, or monkfish tails with a delicate pea risotto. There are always unusual and exciting options for vegetarians and vegans. The owner has a passion for wine, which shows in the huge wine list.
