Meal was very good. Service was adequate but not exceptional, and the wait staff was always moving very quickly. More of a Diner experience than Fine Dining. Atmoshphere was poor. We had read that this was an excellent restaurant, so stopped in the afternoon to take a look. Hostess advised that we would need reservations as it was a busy... More

Went with my mum and sister for dinner. Had the beet appetizer... Delicious, and a work of art. Then had chicken with mashed potatoes and veggies. Yum. Crispy,outside and moist inside.....very flavourful. Salted caramel cheesecake for desert. Not too sweet. Pricey, but worth it. Service was okay. A bit slow at times, but nothing serious. Recommended.

Were planning a day trip to Cobourg and checked tripadvisor for best spot in town to have lunch. Previous reviews were correct, lovely atmosphere and very nice lunch. Spouse had a hamburger which was recommended and I chose the spinach stuffed ravioli. We were very happy with our choices. Would go here again for sure and recommend to friends.

We stayed at the hotel and decided to try the restaurant. So glad that we did; all four of us had the Table D'Hote 3 course menu which proved to be an excellent choice. It was really good value and the setting and style of service were just right.
