Nice location overlooking the falls but menu choice slightly limited. Bit slap dash on the service, couldn't get the order right, forgot our fries & the kid's juice & the spagetti was cold. Expensive for what it was.

The staff was friendly, but slow to take orders/begin service. The food was greasy and mediocre. I would not eat here again. A plus was the decor was cute and dainty.

Restaurant is located right near the Canadian side of the rainbow bridge. Outside tables with views of the falls. Reasonable prices for the area (spent $50 for lunch for 4)

We were advised by our tour guide to eat at this restaurant rather than our hotel (Sheraton on the falls) as the prices were almost half. Took his advice and more than happy, the restaurant even opened early for us on the day of our early departure for breakfast.

Ate here for lunch. Very beautiful spot across the road from the falls and in a garden. The food at lunch was a good portion and very tasty. We had ham and cheese sandwiches with a stir fryed veggie mixture which was delicious. The price was reasonable and the scenery was excellent couldn't ask for more.

When I called to make reservations they told me they "might be able to accommodate us." We get there is only one other table taken in the whole place. I ordered the prime rib, only to be told they didn't have any. Disappointed, I ordered the salmon. For $26, I got a slab of salmon cooked from frozen and not... More

We ate here 3 times during our 3 night stay in Niagara Falls, Once for dinner and twice for breakfast. Large portions and very tasty. The restaurant and gift shop is family owned and operated and these people are attentive and amazing, we always felt welcomed every time we walked in. For a plate of eggs, bacon, homefries and toast... More
