Nice Surprise

The restaurant has a surprisingly large menu and seating area. It has an outdoor patio overlooking a marina and the Ottawa River. My wife and I both ordered fettuccine and they were both excellent and large, with a lot of bacon, chicken.... Service was friendly and courteous. As for price, it was... read more

Today I drove an hour to visit l'escale for lunch. Unfortunately we never ended up eating because after an hour of waiting we decided to get anything else. It wasn't just the wait that was upsetting but the fact that our waitress never checked in to tell us it would be a while. She also refused to speak English to... More

We and a number of our friends have tried this restaurant on numerous occasions and nearly every visit we had some issues with the quality of food presented. It surprises me that many people find their food good. One example is shrimp which has been overcooked and difficult to remove from the shell. The atmosphere is one of the best... More

This restaurant seems to be a little gem in Hawkesbury. A waterfront terrace in summer and water view tables as well as a large dining area. The portions are large, so bring your appetite, or make sure to bring the left overs home for lunch the next day. The service was efficient and friendly. I have never been for Sunday... More

On June 7th, 30 relatives and close friends celebrated Phyllis Stephens 103rd birthday in this little restaurant on Main Street that overlooks the water. The staff was extremely accommodating with short notice of so many people. The food and atmosphere made a great party. We would recommend this restaurant in the heart of the town of Hawkesbury, Ontario.

I was boating the Ottawa river and on occasion I will stop at the Hawkesbury Marina for gas but last Sunday I ask my girlfriend if she felt like stopping and check out the main street just above from the marina... So we docked and took a little stroll and noticed this restaurant about 2 minutes to the left of... More
