Andrra has docked at Three Mile Harbor, sleek as a yacht, with very good Mediterranean and eastern European dishes aboard.

It takes over the pretty perch recently occupied by The Boathouse and Bostwick's. The new eatery looks better than both and often improves on the food.

Shades of white and navy color the place, which offers a delightful sunset view of the harbor. Put an elbow on the polished wood railing and take in the open-air style.

The executive chef and co-owner is Sami Krasniqi, a native of Kosovo who worked at Cafe Max, on Montauk Highway in East Hampton. And the consulting chef is William S. Valentine, from Smithtown, whose local experience has included executive chef at what used to be The Maidstone Arms, also in East Hampton.

Go for a fine steamed lobster, with beurre blanc sauce; savory pappardelle with braised beef;  and a platter of mezze, with hummus, seared red peppers, bruschetta, and shellfish.

And enjoy the terrific view, too.

Andrra, 39 Gann Rd., East Hampton; 631-329-3663.
