Perched on a hill overlooking Camden harbor, the Victorian-era inn appears traditionally appointed from the outside. But in the dining room, the decor mixes the refinement of table linens and large vases of roses with riotously red fabric-covered pendant lamps and bright cushioned seats. It’s elegance with a European flair; dressy but not at all stuffy. In the same vein, service staff members are polished professionals, but not so serious that they don’t allow a touch of fun. As for the food, it merits a big word — magnificent. The art and execution of all of the dishes are as delightful as one can expect, down to the last detail — which might be those bright-green fava beans sharing a plate with perfectly seared monkfish. 5 STARS, APRIL 29, 2012
