Love the courtyard...

Take clients here for lunch and the food is always fresh and tasty. Service is good but sometimes a little slow on bringing the food to the table. Have great daily specials at a good price. Have always sat in the courtyard. It's bright and airy even though you are in side. Definitely worth the... read more

We stopped here for lunch on our way to the US. I would say overall, the restaurant was average. It was located in a nice historic building and it was well maintained. We ordered the spanakopita which was the best part of the meal (as was the tzatziki sauce) and also a bruschetta (interestingly devoid of tomatoes) which was OK,... More

They did a great job in renovating an old bank building, turning it into a beautiful restaurant and at the same time helping to revitalize the old downtown core of Fort Erie. They turned the alley way next to it and joined it with the next door building turning it into a great atrium-like atmosphere. The surroundings are great, the... More

I have been to the restaurant many times for lunch and dinner. Their soups are delicious at lunch time and their dinners are excellent and a good variety to choose from. My favourites are the salmon or steak.

I have been to this establishment several times over the last 5-6 years. The first time I visited the overall experience was great but over time the food and the service seemed to go downhill. Last time I was there I ordered a steak medium and it came out well done with my other 3 friends meal. They took the... More

We stopper here on our way to the Theatre if Buffalo. What a great find. We had the greek salad (great tasting dressing) and the Buffalo Chicken Pizza. The pizza was the best I've had in a long time, dough was perfect, nice and light, homemade and the toppings very flavourful. Would definitely return.

We had a lovely waitress, the meals were good, not outstanding! But what troubled us was the wine list! They list Niagara Vqa wines but you get served lower quality import blends! I felt like I ordered a Filet mignon but received a hamburger and they don't seem to care much about it!
