My husband and I came for a very late lunch (2:00 p.m. or so) in early September. We'd missed both the lunch-time rush and the quiche that had been on the menu that day, but we had a very enjoyable lunch nonetheless. The quesadillas were excellent, the accompanying salads very fresh. The atmosphere is "homey" (cozy, lots of wood) inside,... More

What a find this little gem of a place was....we had the pleasure of dining at The Painted Peppercorn on August 13th. The restaurant itself is small and quaint but has a very nice patio out back. The menu is limited but the offerings were out of this world. Both my husband and I had the (carrot and parsnip soup).... More

Tried eating here twice before but was unable due to timing as we arrived at closing time. Spoke with two ladies who had just finished lunch and they said that they were from Kingston and always ate at the Painted Peppercorn when visiting Picton. Finally made it in time and it is a great little place with home made food.... More

This was our second visit to The Painted Peppercorn. We were seated on a pleasant outdoor patio and the service was attentive and welcoming. The menu is somewhat limited (I think there were 3-4 choices of entrees) but the kitchen appears small and I applaud the owners/chefs for sticking to what they know best and can deliver on; the promise...

Friendly restaurant with home-cooking -- the patio was worth it. Only problem, the entrance to restaurant could be better marked

We dropped in on an evening when we were looking for something simple and summery. The owner was working outside getting things set up so we asked her about the restaurant. She very graciously described their philosophy of cooking (no deep fryer, all fresh ingredients, local whenever possible, etc!) We ate on a small patio out back to enjoy the... More

We'd been here before for lunch, but this time we tried dinner. Lovely fresh food, welcoming service, and an attractive patio. (I particularly liked the bird-house decor.) Good value!

Had an excellent lunch on the patio. Must try!!! Food is flavourful and original. The kids also loved it. Waiter was extremely friendly. Keep room for the home-made desserts. Local wine and produce used.

We were looking for an after dinner drink on a patio, and this place is only one of two patios in town. We enjoyed our time outside but for the location it could use some sprucing up. Trimming a few tree branches, sweeping dead leaves, and tidying the potted flowers in the ground would bring this patio to life, and... More

loved the freshness and taste of my choice (roast chicken wrap) as did my guest (pork meatpie) I chose the salad and the other choice was the soup, both were excellent....Great Value, less than $30 and more than generous servings.....so yummy that we ate every bite!
