Moments walk to the beach, quite and beautiful little town. We stayed in the cottage area of the Inn and had a private balcony and entrance which we loved. Very rustic but clean.

A former Bayfield Chef recommend the Little Inn for dinner so I made a reservation. I was pleased with all from start to finish. Our kind and helpful waitress brought us to our seat in a beautiful dining room with a view outside. A lovely atmosphere! We were brought an amuse-bouche to start- a delicious dumpling- along with fresh baguette.... More

Unremarkable. Very long wait. The grain portion of the meal was so crusty it could have broken a tooth.

We've been before and decided to spend a night away to get through this dreary winter. They often have special wine and dine dinners on a Saturday and this one had an Olympic theme. Each course represented food and drink from top medal winning countries. What fun ! Chef and the sommelier must have had a good time putting this... More

The food is very well prepared. Very enjoyable and of high level. Reasonable price for the place and the overall quality. Reasonable, average service. Nothing special there, but quite adequate. It is the best restaurant, in my view, in a 100 km radius. You will have to go to London or Stratford to get comparable fare. Recommended.

My husband and I stayed at the attached inn for two nights, so our package included breakfast and dinner at this restaurant. Breakfasts were good, but not amazing. I think the fruit buffet could have been more inventive to the eye and palate. It was nice to order off a menu, but most options included eggs and I'm allergic. I... More

My networking group of about 30 recently stayed at this Inn. We like to organize our retreats in small towns across southwestern Ontario in order to support the local communities. Sadly, I felt like this Inn took advantage of us. If our group ever decides to go back to The Little Inn, I will skip the retreat. Let's start with... More

Knowledgeable wait staff. Interesting local food, beautifully prepared. We had three meals there in a short space of time. All were excellent.

We had lunch at the Little Inn restaurant. The service was pleasant and attentive. The decor is nice but not overpowering. I ordered the lamb ragout and my wife had pickerel. Both of us really enjoyed our meal. The seasoning was to perfection. We were also given some warm fresh bread as a starter. Our only complaint is that from... More
