Good food close to our B&B and all the sights.

Excellent food overlooking the American falls, at an affordable price. And you don't need reservations!

Wow. What a nice surprise this place was. I walked from the US side of the Falls to meet a client who was traveling and staying on the Canadian side of the Falls. Neither of us knew where we should meet so he picked a place that was convenient to Rainbow Bridge (the one I walked across). He even said,... More

The Secret Garden Restaurant is very convenient to the Sheraton On The Falls hotel. The food was excellent, we went for breakfast, the service was first rate. Would highly recommend.

The food was decent, but overpriced due to the location near the falls. We had to ask repeatedly to have our water refilled, and the waiter largely ignored us and let the other waitresses pick up his slack. We ate here becuase we didn't want to pay for the overprice Rainforest Cafe or Hard Rock, so we settled on this.... More

Found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. Excellent view of the American falls. Quiet and peaceful refuge after the bustle of the Clifton Hill area. Portion size was good enough for two people to share. Had pancakes for breakfast twice, we shared one portion. Then decided it was too much and had the porridge with fruit and toast. Took our own... More

The secret is how bad the food was! It's a pity, because the restaurant sits on prime real estate overlooking the Falls and offers a great view of the nightly fireworks show. However the stuff that is served up by the kitchen cannot be called food. It's a mix of processed cupboard tasting mulch that has to be washed down... More

We went here on the recommendation of our concierge. Located next to the gardens in front of the Sheraton on the Falls. Quiet, friendly wait staff, good homey food. I had the pot roast and it was yummy. The others had prime rib with no complaints. Reasonably priced for this area. My husband was not impressed with the beer selections... More

I had cheddar broccoli soup and Greek salad. Both were really delicious and portions just right. We dined outdoors with the amazing view of The Falls!! Weather was perfect and had a few little birds to join us. Lovely experience!!
