Our family has eaten here several times in the past 2 years, each one being a culinary adventure. The chef even brought out a sampler of my second choice on the menu, causing me to go back a second time for that dish. Smart chef. LOL

Interesting seating area. It is a small place but you don't feel cramped. The choices on the menu are interesting and the waiter was willing to explain the choices. The food is not a regular bistro fare, and it is very tasty. All the ladies enjoyed their meals. As we were going to the theatre (Dunfield) in Cambridge the service... More

Went three times here for different reasons, once for Afternoon Tea which was amazing and scrumptious! Then for a Christmas Holiday dinner, the food was amazing and it was like being in a Snow Globe with the snow falling outside the window and we actually saw a couple of deer. The third time was for an office cocktail and dinner... More

On our way to a show at Dunfield theatre, this little restaurant is a welcome addition to the Cambridge area. Service was a little slow but the food was well worth it. Kudos to the chef and host. A family business who value quality over quick/easy meals. A must recommend for those stopping in. Reservations recommended!

This is a great spot, unpretentious but delivers. It is imbued with the personal touch - name and decor tell you that - and nary a sign that a cookie cutter designer was used. Most importantly, we found the food to be varied and delicious. Moreover, it was clear from the moment we spoke with the owner that food, its... More

I've been to this restaurant twice now. Each time it has surpassed and surprised my expectations. Heck I even registered to tripadvisor.ca primarily to review this restaurant!
