We went here because of the reviews on this site and just managed to sneak in during their last few open weeks of the season. Our meal was delicious and the staff was very attentive - wish we lived closer. We'd go back again next year!

We did not expect such great food in Gardiner so we were shocked by our meal from the Lighthouse.

All awesome and such large portions that we could... More

Wonderful menu selection, great atmosphere. We had lamb burger and wok chicken followed by coffee and chocolate fudge cake. Great service by a polite young man, Dennis.

Choose this restaurant because of a postcard and claim of 5 star chef. Very sorry to report 5 of 7 people at dinner disliked the choices of the chef. The two like meals were kids that had mac and cheese. This place could be great if dishes were made as the name designates.

Three of us dined here after viewing the reviews on TA. Would we go again, yes, but we'd skip some of the Asian inspired entree choices (two of us had lived in Hong Kong, so maybe we were expecting too much), and stick to the American entrees. We did share the truffled mac & cheese, which was very good. One... More

Good food, not your normal fare, sort of eclectic. Stir fry, Bison, filet cheese steak and tasty desserts.

The food here is very good and the service was outstanding. There were four in our party and everyone was extremely pleased with the quality and quantity of the meals. The prices were very reasonable. The decor in the restaurant was interesting as well. Highly recommend.
