The outside seating area is perfect for the Falls and people watching. We were there in the late afternoon when it wasn't too crowded. Service was very casual but efficient. We only had a plate of calamari, I doubt it didn't come from a bag, but tasty nonetheless.

We only did take out for a quick salad to go, but the service was super fast! The décor inside is so cute, looks like a tea party!

My family and I absolutely loved the atmosphere here! The food was great and they have gluten free options! The French toast was my favorite but everybody thoroughly loved there plate. One of the best restaurant views with plenty of shade if you eat outside.

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.
