    Had a very nice meal there last March.

    Very good food, very reasonable prices. Not much by
    way of ambiance for a moderately priced place, but if
    you're going purely for the food , I think it's

    Some good dishes: grilled octopus salad, asparagus
    salad, squab with truffle brioche bread pudding,
    paella, pear tatin with fromage blanc sorbet and rose
    flavored creme brulee with pistachio biscotti.

          Can is a Vietnamese restaurant with good food, a
          little expensive for what it is (about $35 pp) but
          overall moderately priced. We were there on a summer
          weekend at 3:00 in the afternoon, so it wasn't
          crowded, but I would go there again.
