We tried to visit twice. First, their address is wrong in Trip Advisor. Second, when we found them, they are only open certain days. There is nothing on their website to indicate their days / hours; phoned twice but they do not answer. When we did get there (to find them closed) they scolded us for not leaving a message... More

It was unfortunate that you did not look at the web site or leave a message to find out this information before heading out of the city. TripAdvisor does not allow the option to post by reservation only but our web site does state reservation only and open Thursday to Sunday, Hopefully the next time you travel through you will...

Decided to try this place for my 7th wedding anniversary with my wife. This is by far the best place to eat in Thunder Bay!!!!! The food quality, portion size, presentation is just impeccable! Marcus and his wife gave us the ultimate experience and we left 120% satisfied. What a beautiful atmosphere to enjoy over a 5 course meal. Well... More

I have eaten here and stayed here 4 times and each time i am amazed with how good every course of the meal is. Marcus is a phenomenal chef. Overnight stay is the way to go with quaint cabins and a great breakfast.

Booked a romantic getaway for my husband and I and our experience at Rose Valley was better than I could have ever imagined. Please don't judge the lodge and restaurant by your first impression. It's a bit rustic on the outside, but the cottage we stayed in was so cute, clean and comfy. It had everything that we needed. There... More

Its a short drive to South Gilles in a countryside setting. On certain nights, they have 1 dinner seating at 7pm for a 5-course meal that is pre-selected. For our dinner we had the most amazing soup, tangy salad, home-baked bread, then a smoked duck breast appetizer on rattouille, followed by the main entree which was an amazing tarragon wine... More
