French | Portsmouth, New Hampshire

Amazing food! The waitstaff is very knowledgeable and super friendly. They work in tandem, each helping the other and they work beautifully together. The food is amazing, we each had steak and pork, both cooked to perfection. The potato pancake is so good, perfect little starch. We had an Anniversary dinner there and I would recommend any celebration be held here. Thank you all for making the night very special. More

Discover Portsmouth

Located on the beautiful New Hampshire coast, Portsmouth is one of the top dining destinations north of Boston. With a history as a bustling seaport, Portsmouth is full of charming restaurants and shops that draw on its coastal location. Seafood options are plentiful. You may even be able to enjoy a lobster roll, fried oysters or fish tacos while looking over the ocean where your food was caught earlier that day. And if you are looking for a raw bar for oysters or little-neck clams, you won't be disappointed. Portsmouth is also home to a number of cafes and lounges where you can enjoy both food and art, and you'll see plenty of wine bars and breweries as you stroll down the brick-paved streets of downtown Portsmouth.
