The appeal in the Painted Peppercorn is that it literally looks and tastes like a home cooked meal. With that, you can be honest with yourself and say, "If I was making this dish, what would I expect it to be like?" Every dish will be enjoyable, but nothing will make your socks fly off. It's great if you want... More

The Painted Peppercorn is a fabulous little restaurant for a delicious lunch in downtown Picton. It's just off Main Street and will revive you if you are window shopping and need a little nourishment! The food is consistently excellent and there are always a number of daily specials, each including either soup or salad. The soups are wonderful, the salad... More

Went here with my family for lunch. The food is homemade, honest and overall very good. Two of us had warm chicken wraps with the soup of the day and two had pulled pork sandwiches with salad. We also had the homemade hot apple cider. Service was very friendly and overall we were very happy!

Splendid food, with an original flair. Wouldn't want to miss this place. The server was sweet—a lovely elderly gentleman who was so attentive and prompt. The restaurant is delightfully quirky, warm and colourful. Poets, artists, foodies and appreciative people would love this little gem. Go there for sure.

Homely yet exciting. The staff cannot do enough for you - ALWAYS friendly and forthcoming. The food is always freshly made and something that I look forward to. They always come up with the most delightful deserts.

Great place for a quiet nosh. Try their water-buffalo burgers. Good alternative dishes (Vegan/Indian cuisine). A great place for "something different"

This restaurant has been one of my favourites for quite a while. It is usually my choice when I visit Picton. The food is locally sourced for most items and is prepared with care and thought. Recently I chose the pork, that was smoked with a salad. The dressings for the salads are made in house and the service was... More

Setting: A comfortable hidden patio off Picton's Main Street in the fall harvest sunshine. The Selection: homemade carrot soup was a delightful intro to light flavourful quesadilla, somosas and duck antipasto platter! Excellent local wine list complemented the good eats. Great job! Well fueled to continue our "culinary trail" exploration of Prince Edward County.

We came in just as the kitchen was getting ready to close and they still took our orders. The food was fabulous. A very nice selection is offered on the dinner menu. The meals offered are healthy and freshly made with all local products which is really nice. The wine and beers on the menu are all from the local... More
