This restaurant advertises well but boy was it a disappointment! The hostess was very bizarre, not friendly at all and just a piece of work. After basically apologizing for coming into the restaurant she offered us a table outside. We told her we would be happy to wait for a table inside but she said it would likely be 2... More

Since this restaurant is located near the harbour we decided to try it. The service was fast and the bruschetta and side salads were good. The pizzas were large with plenty of toppings and crispy crust. I had the lasagna which I found to be doughy. The sauce was good. The ravioli was also heavy and the sauce lacked flavour.... More

The food tasted great and there was plenty of it. The server was very friendly and attentive, and the price was reasonable. The building itself was nice and featured some unique and interesting décor.

Great building nice atmosphere and unique. Food was above average not amazing but better than the norm. A bit pricey but it's a tourist area. Service was poor however. Took 15 minutes for our server to first arrive at our table and drink refills were a challenge.

We had Stromboli and breadsticks. I recommend sharing the Stromboli if there are two of you, it's huge! The breadsticks , get with cheese and if you like Alfredo sauce it's awesome to dip the breadsticks in. The only thing I will say is that the decorations and motif in the restaurant is weird. It's all twisted pines, wood walls... More

The food was delicious. I was very surprised because it seemed like a touristy spot to eat and I was afraid the food would taste like the threw it in the microwave and slapped it on a dish but... was I wrong. It was so good. I ordered the whitefish with Polenta.NOM, NOM, my husband ordered the pork tenderloins .... More

We ate during a Friday lunch. Only a few other groups dining. Service was friendly but seemed distracted. Both of us had the garden salad with the Wood Fire Pizzas. The salad was a decent size as a side salad. The pizza was just underwhelming. The crust not good at all and we really thought it would be better. For... More

There was a good selection on the menu, but the food was very overpriced. Besides that, everything was pretty much alacarte and if you wanted soup or a salad you had to pay handsomely for it. They did not even give you a bread basket. The service was terrible. We waited over an hour for our food and never offered... More

This is a fairly nice restaurant and the food is good; not excellent but good. My complaint is in the décor. The restaurant is advertised by the tour guides as "rustic" which I suppose is true. You are surrounded by driftwood that twists all around and under your table which makes it very difficult to get your legs in a... More

Food was amazing! Steak Gorgonzola Alfredo; one of the best Italian dishes I've had. Pizza was very delicious. Staff was very friendly. Price wasn't out of this world, but fair. Except for having to pay for mediocre breadsticks. Saying that the chairs were uncomfortable and the theme felt more like a hunting cabin. The dining hall is tucked behind a... More
