Strutting crowing roosters, a backdrop of a woodland marsh with rare painted turtles, a resident beaver snacking on branches, wood ducks, hummingbirds, eagles and turkey vultures make this an experience beyond the fabulous meals Chef Aldo prepares.

We stopped here with no expectations, just needed dinner while on the road. The restaurant itself is beautiful in a rustic way, with a large covered deck with a view of the lake and the beavers. Happy! Service however was slow, but I think our server was new. We had wine, but it took a long time. Then we tried... More

Location and scenery is beautiful. Service was great, but food was average. We ordered two pasta dishes which were over priced.

What a hidden gem, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit & were so pleasantly surprised by both the quality and quantity of food on our plates. Highly recommend a visit! **on a side note I see someone below rated the service badly because they were on bikes - we were also, but didn't feel in any way discriminated against or that... More

After stumbling upon this quaint restaurant along the highway, myself and my family decided to have a bite to eat. Not only were the food and wine amazing, but were humbled to meet the owner Aldo! What a treat. Top notch service. Good times here.

I have been frequenting this restaurant for over 15 years and it is still as great as it always was. Beautiful setting, fun atmosphere, friendly staff - amazing product! This is truly a gem tucked into a remote niche in the woods…

They definitely do a good job with food, given limited surrounding competition. It is very conveniently located along the Sunshine Coast Hwy, if one is returning from a walk out to the Skookumchuck Narrows near Egmont, a 20 drive from the restaurant. The menu offered a nice selection of fish, chicken, and pasta, as well as good wine and dessert.... More
