A great place to unwind

Great food and great service. Great restaurant if you are a foodie and not in a rush. The architecture of the building is based on a working firehall in it's previous life. Photo Credit; Richard Trus www.richardtrus.ca

My husband and I stopped in for lunch a couple of days ago. The place looks nice, but that is its best feature. I ordered the "Ensalada con Langostino" which was supposed to have "Jumbo shrimp", served on mixed greens, fresh tomatoes, onions and peppers with sun-dried tomato vinaigrette for $11.95. Their idea of a jumbo shrimp and mine do... More

The Firefighters Steak was great! Best meal I've ever had in 30 years service as a Firefighter. Bring a cushion for your posterior as the chairs lack comfort but would recommend to anyone. Even tried Escargot for the first time.

Delicious simple and cheap food. Accommodate dogs on the patio, and had a great menu. The chef is Greek and the menu matches. They do take out too if you need a picnic or to take back to your hotel or B&B. Great drink list. All the local wines and some interesting beers.

My husband and I recently enjoyed lunch at the Old Firehall in St. David's. We had driven by on our way to a weekend in Niagara-on-the-Lake and it looked like a nice spot. So we decided to take a drive out the next day for lunch. It turned out to be a hidden gem in the middle of the country.... More

Really quaint atmosphere - lovely patio but it was full - next time we will reserve there. Our group of 6 was able to order many different items and they were all delicious. Lovely selection of local wines! Gorgeous interior with stained glass. When we got the bill we were very pleased - only $59 for 2 of us and... More

So many items sounded so good, it was hard to make a decision. I had the lamb chops - was ahhhhh may zing! Owner, Chris was delightful and very accommodating. Will surely return.

We had lunch here and it was quite good. There are interesting choices and the prices are reasonable. Our waiter was pleasant and helpful. My husband had the Fajita Pita Wrap and I had the Chicken Focaccia sandwich. The portions were very generous and came with a nice house salad. Everything we saw looked great. We would definitely recommend the... More

We had to wait for a table, as this restaurant is very busy and small. It has a nice bar adjoining the dining room. We had burgers and the grilled salad. Service was very fast and friendly. Food was excellent. Salad had a very nice homemade dressing. My suggestion to the chef is to add some feta cheese to the... More

Tiny little place near to and recommended by our hotel. The service was fast and friendly, everything on the menu sounded good and our server helped us decide. Food was wonderful, perfect portions. Our waiter was the only server and he was amazing!
