Looking for any suggestions for a restaurant for a meal for 4 people. Anything from traditional xmas food to GOOD chinese would be welcome.

  1. The only Chinese worth eating on the Cape is at Golden Fountain on W. Main. in Hyannis. Americanized, but fresh and as non-greasy as one could hope for. CAll to see if they're open on XMas.

    FYI: NO ambiance whatsoever in this small strip mall locale.

    For regular choices, most every place I can think of will be closed on the holiday.

      Golden Fountain seems to have new owners. I haven't sampled much of the menu yet but thought the hot and sour soup was good--a bit chunkier, with lots of pork and tofu, plus a touch spicier, which I like. They're now open 7 days a week, too.

      As you said, Americanized, but agreed that it's about the best locally.

        This thread gave me the hankering, so I just finished some takeout with the DW. Very good as per usual. I also asked, and they are indeed open Christmas Day.

    2. Does anyone have any non-Chinese recommendations?

      Hotel dining rooms? Hearth & Kettle? Cape Codder Hotel? Daniel Webster? Ocean Edge?

      1. Villa Roma in Harwich is open on Christmas evening, call to reserve, 508-432-6868. It's a festive sort of happy place, not polished or elegant but very good with a great vibe. I think you would enjoy it.
