Stopped in at this restaurant and we were glad we did. Decor is reminiscent of Greece/ Mediterranean influenced and the food is excellent. My favorites were the 12oz sirloin steak and the lamb shank. Great food at a great price.

We were drawn to this location because of the location and the old firehall incorporated into the design of the restaurant. The sign out front all peeling and in poor condition should have been a sign of things to come. The dinner menus were dropped onto the table and it did not seem to strike the server odd that there...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are shocked to learn of this, as we have not received a complaint recently. In your review you state that the draught beer was flat and warm and undrinkable. We have not ever had a complaint with respect to the temperature of our beer, and a quick check of... More

My family came upon this restaurant after not being able to get a table at the winery restaurant next door. Both the service and the food were excellent. All three of us were very pleased we our dinners.

We happened upon the Old Firehall on a very rainy day as we were looking for lunch. It's small (8-10 tables) and we weren't sure we'd get in. We did, and were we ever glad! In fact, we liked it so much we went back for lunch the next two days too! George, the waiter, could not have been more... More

Amazing escargot comparable to Paris and the pasta was great. My husband had the calamari and agreed that it was equally delicious. Thanks to the great service and the chef for the amazing evening out! Wine selection was nice too.

Show up to grab a bite to eat on the patio. Waitress was friendly enough. I ordered a salad with no onions. I sent it back. She brought out our bruschetta; it was four slices of thick (+1") dry bread with flour coating the whole bottom of it, with maybe a tbsp of bruschetta on top. It was dry and... More

I can assure you this is not the case. The Items you mentioned in your review have been staples of our establishment since the beginning 20 yrs. ago and... More

After living in the area for 7 years we finally decided to try this small but mighty restaurant tucked away in the St. Davids area of Niagara on the Lake. The menu was diverse covering a Mediterranean flare. There were 4 of us and we tried 3 different dishes plus a shared appetizer of Saganaki. All were very tasty and... More

I thought this might be a good find being that it's off the beaten track from the NOTL tourist traps, however, I was pretty disappointed with the menu selection and food. The dining room is small but quaint, and it was very busy. The service was really good. My friends enjoyed their meal, perhaps I just selected the wrong thing.... More

I dined here by myself while attending a conference and I enjoyed it thoroughly. The server was so friendly and attentive. He recommended an affordable wine that was exactly what I was looking for. I had the steak sandwich with a greek salad and both were delicious and reminded me of the kind of quality traditional meal reminiscent of family... More

The food was so good at this restaurant, very quiet atmosphere but friendly, clean, charming and service was wonderful. Had the chicken souvlaki and beef tenderloin - both were amazing, we ate everything on our plates, so tender and juicy. just overall great experience.
