This was our first restaurant we stopped at when arriving in Charleston. We had passed others by after reviewing menus because fried, heavy food on a hot evening sounded awful to us. We found this little gem just in time (hunger pangs were taking over). It says it's French but I feel like it's a Californian fare with a side of French: nice and light menu and healthy for a restaurant. I have a food allergy and I asked Katie, our waitress about any concerns and she double-checked with the chef to confirm it was a safe place for me to eat (in the South, this is a bit tricky). I was really too hot to eat (it was a heat wave when we went through, even the locals were sweaty!) so I only ordered white wine and the basil and tomato pizza, light on the cheese. It was perfect for me that night. It really is more of a snack for big eaters but I eat light and had a small appetite that evening. My husband ordered a fish dish and the portion was just about right: a small fish portion with some sort of rice. He didn't finish all of the rice (it was a tad too much but for most Americans, it would be a proper portion).
If you are looking for a lighter fare that is pretty healthy (think California Cuisine), then this is the place: it's not "Hoity-Toity" like so many Charleston establishments try to be. It's simple, classic, easy, comfortable and fits the bill on a hot day. We ate inside rather than out, I didn't want to sweat and have wind in my face but the view we had was just fine!
