We didn't eat here, just stopped for a cup of tea after hopping off the WEGO bus after a busy day of sightseeing. It's a great spot to sit out in the garden and simply enjoy the proximity of the falls without being in a crowd. Yummy looking ice cream menu!

We arrived just before they were closing and lucky to order quickly. Great customer service, very tasty food for reasonable prices. Two meal with juices for around $40-45 american dollar. We have tried the home made juice, it was also very good, refreshing.

We found this little café in the park below our hotel and it was first class. The food and the staff were great and the value was fantastic.

We each had soup and sandwich that were delicious. The croissants the sandwiches were made with were fantastic. The chicken gumbo was also good. Dessert (apple crisp) was also great.

We went on our tour around the Falls earlier in the day, and our tour guide told us to check out this restaurant as it's dubbed "the best kept secret of Niagara Falls." Because of this, we decided to give it a try later that night for dinner. It has a massive gift shop which you go through to get... More

The food here was OK, but it was so awesome to be able to sit on the patio and see both the American falls and the Canadian falls. The restaurant also overlooks a well manicured garden that was beautiful.

Mediocre at best but very close to the falls thus convenient. The service was good. The food was about what you would get in a school cafeteria.
