  • The steak tartars is an obscene amount of food. The new sea bass dish is incredible. Very fresh
  • They serve an unadvertised burger and fries that is really tasty.
  • Best mussels in Cambridge! And Ask for Rodrigo, he gave us awesome recommendations :)
  • Food is tasty. Small but cozy. Try the oyster and the bar upstairs
  • 'Lost in translation' has many ingredients that might seem weird on a menu but taste great when they are all together in your glass!
  • Bread comes with a pretty good bean dip. Kale salad and octopus are pretty good.
  • The steak-frites and oysters are a must try.
  • so the clam chowder. it has *whole* clams in it. i.e. shells. and very little actual chowder. fwiw.
  • Do the Deviled eggs and California Pinot Noir. Don't touch the steak tartare. It's like store bought hamburger meat dumped into a ramekin.
  • Must have the creme brulee
  • This place is great for a night cap!
  • The menu is small but it changes constantly. Mediterranean fare from Spain to the south of France is delicious, if you don't mind spending a bit of cash (entrees range from $21-$27)
  • Sit at the bar, and avoid the trout.
  • You can not go wrong with the steak tartar. Delicious.
  • Mussels are wicked good, a must have.
  • ask for the chocolate cake for dessert, even though it'll be 30 minutes...
  • The mussels are amazing and could be a meal in itself
  • BLT Salad was so good.
  • Get the burger!
  • parsnip soup. salad with pom seeds. steak frites.
