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

Had an amazing 5 course meal for my husband!a birthday. Can't say enough how much we enjoy ourselves. Brought our daughter along and she was enthralled with the farm animals.

We love coming to Rose Valley for the dinner and mile high theatre package. The meal is always awesome and the service so friendly and enjoyable. It is a treat that we all cherish. Our only problem is paying for the meal in a timely fashion. We have been late for the play at the community hall for the past... More

I had my 40th birthday dinner at Rose Valley, and as usual we were not disappointed. I cannot say enough good things about the food and service. You feel right at home with Deborah and Marcus as if you were their invited guests. Between courses we were entertained by the goat and sheep outside the window. My husband and I... More

We had the 7-course meal New Year's Eve and stayed the night, and once again Markus did not disappoint! Great service by Deb; the other guests were like friends at the end of the meal. The setting, among the hills of South Gillies, superb. When he's done the final (dessert) course, Markus comes out to meet, greet and chat with... More

We go to Rose Valley every year for our anniversary and have always always loved it. It's not just meal, its an experience. It's so relaxing and it forces you to settle down and enjoy the moment. The food is absolutely second to none and Markus is so easy and welcoming. I love that the food is local and everything... More

I've live in Thunder Bay most of my life and only found our about this place through trip advisor. We ended up staying the night with the dinner package. There's an option to being your own food but trust me, you'll want to eat here. Food and presentation was like nothing we've had. It was definitely great. It comes with... More
