Since taking over in 2002, young Australian chef and surfer Michael Smith has turned this informal beachfront bistro with simple white decor and brightly colored contemporary art into a happening, must-book destination. Superfresh seafood dominates the menu, much of it spiked with Mediterranean or Asian flavors, such as pan-fried Falmouth scallops dressed with yuzu, purple shiso, and sanga radish. On the terrace, heaters and blankets keep the shivers away after the sun sets so you can stay put and finish that bottle of white wine being chilled in a plastic beach bucket.

Closed Mondays and for breakfast and lunch Thursday through Saturday in the off-season.
